The National Trust are looking for new volunteers to help at Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens and are hosting two drop-in sessions where you can find out more.
The hall at Beningbrough has been closed for nearly two years to allow for essential infrastructure and compliance work to be completed. Ahead of re-opening in the summer, the charity is seeking people interested to volunteer and get involved. To find out more head to Beningbrough on Wednesday 3 May 2 – 4pm or Sunday 14 May 12noon – 2pm where the team will be on hand to chat through the opportunities and help to find the right fit for you.
Roles include House and Gallery Experience Volunteers, Collections, Care and Conservation Volunteers, Events Volunteers, Food and Beverage Volunteers and Garden and Parks Volunteers. Whatever your interests there’s likely a place for you. Full training will be given and it’s a great way to meet people, make new friends and share your skills and knowledge.
Lura France, Volunteering and Community Officer at Beningbrough said, “It’s an exciting time to volunteer with the National Trust at Beningbrough as we re-open the hall and art gallery and continue to expand the gardens. We are looking for interested, enthusiastic individuals to work in the gardens, help prepare and run events, look after the historic hall and collections or help to ensure every visitor is welcomed and enjoys their visit.”
Beningbrough’s volunteers come from all age groups and backgrounds…you don’t have to wait for retirement to reap the benefits. Many students and recent graduates use volunteering as a great way to build their CVs and gain relevant experience or simply to get a sense of where their place in the workforce might be.
