If you're looking for a new challenge then volunteering with us at The Workhouse, Southwell could be for you. We're repeating our successful Taste of Volunteering event on Tuesday 3 June between 10am and 12noon.

Last year’s event proved very popular, with the majority of attendees joining The Workhouse team in a range of roles. This year’s event will follow a similar format where attendees can hear about the range of volunteering opportunities over tea and cake, and then shadow volunteers as they carry out their roles.

Don't take our word for it

‘The warm welcome and enthusiasm from the knowledgeable volunteers was great’ commented participant, Shelley Beales. Now an active volunteer, Shelley is glad she took up the challenge adding, ‘As well as meeting new people, volunteering has been varied, fun, very rewarding and definitely time well spent’.
