Make a Difference 2011... Volunteer with the North Yorkshire Rotters
To celebrate national Make a Difference Day on 29th October, the North Yorkshire Rotters are looking for new volunteers! We are offering volunteering opportunities for enthusiastic people who are passionate about reducing waste. This is the perfect opportunity to give something back to your community and help work towards a better environment.
Volunteers from the North Yorkshire Rotters will be at the "Make a difference" charity Fayre at Thirsk Town Hall on 29th October, 10am-2pm, to showcase the work they do.
The Rotters are fully trained volunteers who donate their time and enthusiasm to raise awareness amongst the wider public of the importance of home composting and Love Food Hate Waste programme. They engage with communities through attending shows, running events, festivals and giving talks, maintaining compost display areas and much more.
Through these activities, the Rotters encourage and help more people to compost, and to reduce their food waste by effective planning, storing and cooking with leftovers. Collectively, these actions help to divert biodegradable waste away from landfill and reduce greenhouse gases, while encouraging healthier, more sustainable lifestyles.
As a Rotter you will meet like minded people, work as part of a team, learn new skills and gain valuable experience. You will receive full training, on going support and out of pocket expenses.
The North Yorkshire Rotters are holding training days throughout North Yorkshire.

The North Yorkshire Rotters are supported and co-ordinated by North Yorkshire County Council.
