We currently have some truly amazing volunteer hosts who come from all around the country! Without them The Bee Tree Community CIC wouldn't be the wonderful Hive of Activity that it is!

Our hosts are a joy to work with and we can't thank them enough for their commitment, reliability and enthusiasm, which makes the behind the scenes running of Bee Tree so much smoother for the management team.

Not all of our hosts have their own businesses. Some have a lifetime of graft and experience and are now retired, whilst others help us out in their time off work.
What they do have is compassion, a belief in community and a desire to help us create a better world which enriches us all.
