New volunteering opportunities with Swan

18 April 2018

Currently recruiting!

The Swan Trust is going through an exciting period of change. We have a very busy season ahead and are actively seeking new recruits to volunteer with us and develop our future plans.

If you have a keen interest in helping out we’d like to hear from you. In particular we are looking for people with skills and attributes in the key areas of administration, marketing and sea staff.

You can find out more about these opportunites by visiting our Volunteer page.

Or if you would like more information, please call either Peter Campbell on 01595 695193 (Secretary) or Ruth Grainger 07771 262499 (crewing and logistics).
