Why do our members volunteer?
Our membership includes people from every corner of the county, from different backgrounds and industries – it is what makes our team so special.
“I started volunteering for SULSAR nine years ago. It is my way of giving back and helping the community of Suffolk.”
“I have always loved the outdoors and I enjoy helping people. I met SULSAR at a tractor fayre & enrolled there and then. I went through training and the rest is history.”

“Watching the volunteers of SULSAR descend on a car-park rendezvous point is one of the most amazing things. When you see everyone arriving, familiar faces and smiles – you know you are part of something special.”
