Willow Tree Centre is on a 15 acre site between Ruislip & Harefield and has a holiday house sleeping 33, a training centre, 3 campsites & outdoor activities. It is run by volunteers for Girlguiding Middlesex North West and is used by a wide range of groups including various youth groups, schools, special schools, faith groups & special interest groups as well as Girlguiding and Scout units.
We need a lot of help to keep all this running and need volunteers in the following areas:-
Marketing, fundraising, outdoor (weeding/pruning), handyman, outdoor activities, archery instructors, checkers.
Volunteers do not need to be members of Girlguiding but should support our aims and ethos & a DBS check may be carried out depending on the role.
