This year CALL have been running a monthly volunteer day. Each month we get together and spend a few hours helping one of The CALL projects.

Our first in January unfortunately was called off due to snow and ice. The plan was to start the year with a litter pick in Culag Wood and enjoy a gentle walk. Not quite to plan but there were some beautiful views with the snow.

It was a fantastic day for our second event. Again, in Culag Wood (after a slight change of plan from being at Little Assynt), we were clearing some of the Sitka Spruce saplings to use for wildlife platforms. Thank you to the volunteers that came and joined me, we managed to get enough wood in record speed!

Unfortunately, March’s event was cancelled due to myself, being ill and unable to run the event! Apologies from me.

So, let’s look forward to April where we will have two volunteer days.

  • 11th April 2-4pm Beach Cleaning in Culag Woods down the Higgledy Piggledy Path.
  • 25th April 10am – 1pm Monthly Volunteer Day. Beach Clean at Stoer Green. Meet at the cemetery carpark between Clachtoll and Stoer NC040282

Please make sure to wear sturdy boots and be prepared for any weather. Litter picking equipment provided. Please bring your own refreshments.

If you have any queries about these or future volunteering events, please don’t hesitate to contact me on vcampen@coigach-assynt.org or call the office on 01571 844638. New volunteers are always welcome. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, enjoy the outdoors and learn some new skills. I hope you can join us at an event soon!
