Woodcroft Wild Space
Volunteer: Dan Walker (Regional Account Manager)
Charity website: www.woodcroft.org.uk
Charity Number: 1077857
About this charity: Woodcroft Wildspace is in Winchmore Hill but it is not just for the benefit of residents of that area. The wildspace is for everyone to enjoy. It is a place where people can bring their children to learn about nature - insects, birds, small mammals, pond life, plants and trees in a natural habitat. This is especially beneficial for those who do not have the luxury of their own garden. Everyone is invited to come along and both help the series of projects have in action as well as to see the wildspace.
Woodcroft Wildspace started life in 2003 with the formation of the Friends of Woodcroft with about a dozen people. Since then they have grown to over 1000 and still growing.
About the volunteer: Dan has worked at Solid Solutions for just under 2 years (11 months at Cadtek). It means a lot to him to have a day free to work in the charity as he thinks it is important for companies and people to create a positive impact on their environment and communities.
Dan has always liked to volunteer whenever he has the time, having done a few projects in the UK and overseas, he finds volunteering a very rewarding experience. He chose this charity as he wanted to give something back to his local community and wanted to support a local charity, especially something related to nature. Not everyone has the access to green space or a garden, so this nature reserve is for everyone to enjoy, not just the local residents. It is a place where people of all ages can come to learn about nature - insects, birds, small mammals, pond life, plants and trees in a natural habitat.
Dan will volunteer as a supervisor to assist the team in running programmes of activities agreed and mapped out for each visit.
