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).

The Swan Trust is offering a varied 2020 programme of trips, which can now be booked online. Swan will visit two festivals on the UK Mainland, cruise down the Caledonian Canal, explore the Western Isles, and look to hop over to St Kilda. She will also be doing trips around Shetland, including a partnership with local musician Barry Nisbet to offer his Sessions and Sail in the isles for the first time, to coincide with the start of the 40th Shetland Folk Festival, and trips to coincide with Shetland Boat Week and the Festival of the Sea in Scalloway.  In August she will head over to Norway on a trip inspired by the Shetland Bus then take a cruise around the Hardangerfjord before returning to Shetland for September.
