Volunteering speaks for itself

“You’ve created a fun atmosphere at Upton among the volunteers and staff. Being part of it is one of the reasons I came."  Val Tate – a new recruit

"Volunteers are involved in everything. Front of house, the gardens, behind the scenes and in the office. We even have a team of Christmas elves!”   Michelle Leake, Collections & Engagement Manager.

How can I get involved?

In addition to their main roles, this year our volunteers joined in work on:

  • Researching and helping to present our Shell exhibition
  • Caring for the books in our library
  • Preparing for next year's transformation of the house to how it looked during World War 2 as HQ of a merchant bank.

.. .. and enjoyed coffee mornings, film showings and social trips to other Trust properties.
