PDSA at BBC Countryfile Live North

One of Britain's most loved TV programmes is live for the first time in the North! BBC Countryfile Live is a fantastic event, this year celebrating 30 years of Countryfile.

There are amazing activities for visitors, including the Village Green, the Countryfile Experience featuring the programmes presenters, the Wildlife Zone, Farming in Action, Passion for British Livestock, and the Dog Lover's Arena proudly sponsored by PDSA!

We need volunteers to help us man our PetWise vehicle where we’ll be talking to visitors about the amazing work we do. We need volunteers for different roles:
