Fancy a trip to Iceland? And I'm not talking supermarket!

BTCV the conservation charity have the trip of a lifetime on offer. 

If you are aged between 20 and 30 and have volunteered with BTCV in the past then you could be in with a chance to take the trip of a lifetime to volunteer in the wilds of Icelands National Parks. All travel, accommodation, food, insurance, personal support, emergency back-up, training costs and a small living allowance are provided. Get in touch by noon on 14 February to be in with a chance to head to Iceland.

Don’t worry if you don’t fit into this age category. BTCV also have a couple of fully funded three week volunteering trips for people over 50 who have volunteered with them in the past. So if you think that you would like to volunteer in Icelands national parks and are over 50 then the deadline is 15 March.

If you don't fancy leaving the UK and live in Scotland or London, you can apply for a bursary of up to £500 to cover travel, accommodation and other costs involved in a volunteering exchange. Volunteers can choose any opportunity that takes place between now and September 2012 that demonstrates one or more of the Olympic values of; Friendship, Respect, Courage, Determination, Equality and Inspiration.  Here's some more information about the wave of friendship
