Optional donation

Woodcraft Folk relies on donations to fund our work. It costs £39 a year to support each volunteer with training, insurance, and specialist advice, but we don’t exclude those who can’t donate. If you can, please donate to cover your volunteering costs - if you can donate more, you can support volunteers who can't afford to donate, and fund our charitable work with young people. Every donation helps, even if you don't feel able to donate the suggested £39.
