About this volunteering opportunity

We have a great opportunity for someone to get involved with our walking project.

You will be responsible for driving a minibus once a week during the autumn and spring months on Wednesday afternoons. You will meet the team in central Brighton and then drive out to a location on the South Downs or surrounding countryside. After the group has completed their hike, you will drive the minibus back to town and return it to the depot.

As part of the opportunity, you will be welcome to join the group during the walk if you would like to.
