Volunteering at Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood

The National Trust simply wouldn't be able to look after the special places in its care without the help of volunteers. From the gentleman parking cars on busy afternoon to the lady who was a fountain of historical knowledge in the hall they were more than likely part of our dedicated team of volunteers. There are all sorts of ways you can get involved with volunteering at Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood, from visitor facing roles, to office admin to helping out with the weeding. There really is something for everyone!
