Tramper Volunteers

Would you like to be a Tramper volunteer and transform the lives of people in your community?

Getting outside into nature has proved more vital than ever to our health and happiness during the past year but sadly, with around 1 in 10 people lacking the stamina to walk very far, it's often not possible for some. Walks with granchildren, quality time with friends, fresh sea air and spectacular views - all these things are valuable to us, enriching our social lives and giving us a physical and mental boost. 

We are working to create access for those with physical difficulties and are planning to open up some all-terrain mobility scooter hire points around Morecambe Bay. Would you like to be part of our Tramper team creating opportunities for people in your community to rediscover the joy of getting outdoors?

What skills do I need?

The role would suit you if you love sharing your passion for the local area and being outdoors as well as an ability to communicate instructions and information in a friendly and helpful manner.

What does being a Tramper volunteer involve?

You can help by:

  • monitoring booking requests (all Trampers are pre-booked, so no waiting around)
  • meeting and greeting visitors
  • sharing safety information and guidance
  • advising on Tramper routes
  • being on hand to sign the Trampers back in
  • helping with route testing  

Initially, we're looking for volunteers for the hire point at Roudsea Woods at Haverthwaite during weekends, and also from the library at Grange-over-Sands, 7 days per week. If you can support this service by offering some of your valuable time, please get in touch with richard@morecambebay.org.uk.
