Here at the Trust we welcome the help of volunteers from all walks of life. Many of our teams work closely with university students, both on long-term placements and for shorter stretches of time. For student volunteering week we caught up with Cybeles Nunziata; who has been helping us to tidy the waterways around Leicester, and Teveil Walker; a student volunteer with our environment team.
