The work car­ried out by Sus­trans Scot­land vol­un­teers across the coun­try was re­cently cel­e­brated at two-day event on Ar­ran.

More than 40 vol­un­teers at­tended the ‘fes­tivol’ week­end, which took place at Lochranza Youth Hos­tel. At­ten­dees learned more about how Sus­trans helps peo­ple across Scot­land to walk and cy­cle for more of the jour­neys they make ev­ery day, and were up­dated on re­gional vol­un­teer­ing projects.

Vol­un­teers also braved the stormy weather to go on led bike rides and walks across the is­land, guided by Sus­trans ride and walk lead­ers.

Sus­trans Scot­land vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor for routes Laura White said ‘fes­tivol’ was a chance for Sus­trans to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the time and sup­port peo­ple gave to the char­ity.

‘Our vol­un­teers are what makes Sus­trans spe­cial. We have so many fan­tas­tic vol­un­teers across Scot­land who are grounded in com­mu­ni­ties and make a real dif­fer­ence in their lo­cal area.

‘Fes­tivol has been an op­por­tu­nity for Sus­trans to give some­thing back to the peo­ple whose pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion is so vi­tal in help­ing us to achieve our vi­sion of hap­pier, health­ier com­mu­ni­ties and a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment for us all.’

The Sus­trans vol­un­teers came to­gether for their ‘fes­tivol’ in Lochranza.
