Volunteering in the South West

Looking for something new to do this year? Volunteering could be just the thing to kick off your New Year's resolutions. Here's just a few ways you can get involved in the year ahead.


Love food? Would you like to volunteer at Avebury?

What visit to Avebury is complete without indulging in a piece of cake and warming cup of tea? Our food and beverage team know how to help our visitors relax, refuel and refresh – and we are looking for volunteers to help with this! Great customer service is essential, as well as the ability to work well as part of a fast paced team. If this sounds like a volunteer role that you would like to apply for please click above, or contact Fraser Normington, Volunteering Co-ordinator, on (01672) 538017 for an informal chat.
