• BOSF Friends Group’s volunteering hours, April – June 22

    We would like to send out a big thank you to all of the Friends of parks volunteer groups in Birmingham!
    The figures for April – June 22 have been collected together, a total of 23,530 volunteering hours have been logged, which on the current Birmingham living wage of £9.90 comes out at a huge financial value of £232,947!
    As well as this financial value, there are so many more benefits gained from the work these volunteers do – for their local communities, for health, wellbeing, and of course, nature & wildlife.
    Thanks to all of the volunteers for their continued time and effort helping in their local parks and open spaces, (and for sending in their volunteering hours to us), the amazing Park Rangers and Birmingham City Council staff for their continued support and, to Denise for her work compiling all the data together!
