As part of a nationwide ‘Welcome to Woodcraft Folk’ campaign, Diss Woodcraft Folk are welcoming new volunteers to their organisation to enable even more children and young people to take part. The group, who meet at the United Reformed Church Hall in Mere Street, deliver education for social change through a range of fun indoor and outdoor activities.

The Woodcraft Folk is an educational movement for children and young people, designed to develop self confidence and activity in society, with the aim of building a world based on equality, friendship, peace and cooperation. Current volunteers run weekly groups for 9-15 year olds and take children away on residentials and camping trips.

But potential volunteers don’t need to be the next Bear Grylls, there’s plenty of ways to support the group. The group are keen to hear from anyone who might like to deliver a one-off activity based on a hobby or interest, or those with admin skills to keep the group running.

Pip Sayers, Chair of Trustees for Woodcraft Folk, said, “We want young people from all communities to be able to benefit from Woodcraft Folk. Our organisation was founded on the principle of inclusion, and we are looking for more volunteers in local communities to help us make that happen. Our current ‘Welcome to Woodcraft Folk’ campaign enables new volunteers to find out more about supporting our activities and stresses that everyone is welcome at Woodcraft Folk.”

Adults who are interested in volunteering with Woodcraft Folk can call 020 7703 4173 for more information or sign up via www.woodcraft.org.uk/join.
