Are you great with people, love to tell a story, interested in your local history or nature and the outdoors? Join Attingham and Sunnycroft’s student volunteering team and get some great work experience this summer?

What’s involved?

Volunteering in a range of roles during the summer holidays to help us make sure visitors have a great day at our properties and support our conservation work. 

You could be welcoming visitors, leading summer activities as part of ‘The big summer adventure at Attingham’, sharing the stories of our places, or getting stuck in with some gardening.
