Instant volunteering opportunities at Attingham

Easter hunt fun

At times throughout the year you can sign up to be an 'Instant Volunteer' at Attingham. Coming up next is a shout out to help us over the Easter holidays.

Instant Volunteering opportunities are one off occasions, events or activities where you can try out volunteering with us - such as helping out at our annual Night Run, or knitting a creature for our Woollen Woods last autumn.

 With Instant Volunteering you'll just need to let us know that you're coming, we'll sign you up on the day, and you'll be Instant Volunteering before you know it. It's a great way to try volunteering and see if it's for you, or if you'd like to be volunteer but can't commit to doing so regularly.

Instant Volunteering - Easter Helpers

This year we’re calling the Easter holidays the ‘BEaster’ holidays as we’re focusing on the estate’s minibeasts and insects – including the special deadwood invertebrates that Attingham is designated a SSSI for. This is all part of our 2019 theme ‘Grow Your Green Roots’ and our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt trail is all about ‘BEaster Beasties’. Each year we host this event and give out almost 5,000 Cadbury chocolate eggs as the prize for those taking part, so it can be busy.  At the end of the trail, to help visitors grow their green roots we’re giving families taking part in the trail the opportunity to make a nature promise, and to mark that promise by tying a coloured ribbon to our nature promise display.

We’re looking for Instant Volunteers to help manage what we hope will become a visual, colourful piece of art. Your role would be to explain the promises to families, helping them take part and keeping an eye on the overall look of the promise art. A full briefing will be given to you before you start and there will always be others of the team on hand to help. We may also ask you to help handing out Cadbury Easter eggs as well.

Who would this role suit?

Someone who’d like to help families get the most out of their day, likes to encourage creative activity, has a love of nature and has time to spare over the Easter holiday weekends.
