Do you want to help promote healthy eating, environmental and welfare awareness? Call for new volunteers

A number of volunteering opportunities have been made available in the upper Calder Valley, an excellent way to get hands-on experience in writing, editing and leading. 3 Valley Vegans is a local group who want to inform and support people moving towards a healthy vegan lifestyle. We produce a newsletter and website and maintain a presence on social media. We also run events such as cookery demonstrations and information stalls. These activities are coordinated and delivered by a core group of volunteers who are looking to welcome and train people in the following positions.
