If you would like to help, please get in touch to register your interest. Don’t worry if you have little or no experience as free training will be provided. The support of the local community and volunteer involvement in this project is absolutely vital to its success. We need you to be Charnwood Roots Champions and spread the word, encourage people to join in and help us make connections with your area.
