Guy Busher - Volunteer

What inspired me to want to start volunteering with the National Trust?

Guy Busher

I wanted to be part of a charity that cared about issues that were important to me, but perhaps more importantly  wanted to be able to be actively involved with people and in an area where I could offer my existing skills but develop new and interesting ones.

What's the best part of Volunteering at Croome?

Undoubtedly the people who work and volunteer here. But it is a truly beautiful and peaceful place.

What’s keeping me busy at the moment?

Working in an admin environment and developing skills that I didn't have before. Reception is just fun with lots of visitors and a great reception team who are very supportive and friendly.

What's my favourite part of Croome?

Difficult question but I think  the park on a still sunny autumn morning .

What's my favourite story about Croome?

The fact that the 6th Earls second wife ( Barbara  st George)  fell in love with the place and made it her true home .

What do I do when I’m not volunteering?

Volunteer for another charity on a more occasional basis. Have free time to visit my children as I need to. 

What advice would I give anyone thinking about volunteering with the National Trust?

Go and do it. It's interesting, fun and very therapeutic!
