Your invitation to our Big Green Weekend - 3-6 October 2014

Join us for this year's Big Green Weekend and help us celebrate our 55th birthday.

Our annual flagship event is now in its fourth year and is the UK's biggest weekend. This fun event is our chance to show you the tremendous work our staff and volunteers do across the UK and your opportunity to join in.

As 2014 marks a special TCV birthday our theme this year is Volunteer 55 (#volunteer55). Over the weekend we want to encourage you to join in and feel good by doing 55 minutes of volunteering. We'll be holding events for all ages and abilities around the country, so there's sure to be something happening near you! To find out where your nearest BGW event is taking place, check out the map on the left.

Feeling inspired? Join us at one of our events for willow weaving, bug hunts, wild seed bombing, charcoal burning, bird box making, conducting wildlife surveys, create a community garden and much more. Enjoy our #volunteer55 challenge and help us to celebrate our 55th Birthday - we guarantee lots of fun!

If you can’t find an event near you, why not hold your own?  Our fundraising kits have all the ideas you need to hold you own Big Green event, so there's no need to miss out on the fun.

Competition

Send a photo of your #volunteer55 via our twitter page or email to volunteer55@tcv.org.uk. The best picture will win a complete range of Moshi Monster garden tools and five runners up will win packets of seeds. Competition terms & conditions - good luck!

Join in and feel good this autumn join our celebrations and wish us happy birthday!
