When the Vospers team found out that the Devon Wildlife Trust were facing an issue with transport for their band of volunteers, they were pleased to do everything they could to help. Step in the Dacia Duster. Now when the team at the Trust is out and about educating local people on the benefits of taking care of the region’s incredible range of wildlife they have a sturdy set of wheels to get them from A to B.
We caught up with the Trust to find out just what a typical working week looks like for the newest member of their team – the Dacia Duster.
The Trust had organised a fun Starfish Seashore Craft Event down at the Wembury Marine Centre and the Duster was on hand to get full time volunteers to the centre on time. The event was full of family fun with arts and crafts and the chance to find out about the stunning starfish to be found on our coastline.
It was off to school for the Duster as the team visited St Andrews C of E Primary School in Buckland Monachorum to deliver a talk about Devonshire wildlife.
This time it was the volunteers who were going back to school. The Duster taxied a team of volunteers to the Devon Wildlife Trust Headquarters in Cricklepit Mill, Exeter, for a volunteer management course.
On road again to deliver talks at schools in the Teign Valley and Newton Abbey. The Trust aims to protect our environment and wildlife and secure it for future generations. Education is one of the key ways they continue to do this.
Health and safety when we’re out and about is of utmost importance so today we head off in the Duster to the Goschen Centre in Plymouth City College for a course to keep our skills up to date.
You didn’t think it would be a Monday to Friday job did you? Of course not! Today the Dacia Duster is the star of the show on the Marine stand at the Devon Wildlife Trust Wildlife Festival in Barnstaple. An exciting event packed with family fun and opportunities to learn about life on our seashores.
It’s all in a week’s work for the newest member of the Devon Wildlife Trust’s team, but the Duster can take it easy on Sunday before it all starts again!
