Volunteers' Week - meet some of our volunteers

As part of Volunteers' Week 1- 7 June we celebrated our volunteers at the Norfolk Coast and Broads portfolio by profiling a different volunteer each day. There are over 100 volunteers working with our teams across all areas of operation at the Norfolk Coast and Broads. In 2019 they collectively gave 8,580 hours of invaluable volunteering time to the National Trust enabling us to care for and welcome visitors to our places. Volunteers are an important and integral part of our team and here are some of their stories.
