Get involved at Nunnington Hall

Volunteer Linda with a young visitor

Making new friends, working in an amazing place and knowing that you're helping a great cause – are just three fabulous reasons to volunteer at Nunnington Hall. It's the skills, time and passion of our volunteers that makes us extra special.

Here at Nunnington Hall, we’re a close-knit group with big hearts. We're always ready to welcome new people to the team and show you the ropes. From sharing our favourite family stories, running exciting events, to getting stuck in with a shovel in the garden, there are plenty of ways to get involved. 

Here are some more great ways to get involved:

Story Sharer 
If only these walls could talk! That’s why our volunteer room guides make such a difference and help bring Nunnington Hall to life. They’re passionate about family stories, art and interiors, and love making people feel at home. Don’t worry, you don’t need to know everything, you’ll pick things up soon enough from chatting with other volunteers.  
Events Volunteer
Events Assistants help to deliver a variety of different activities, from planning and preparation to setting up, to running the event on the day. It’s a great opportunity to get creative while helping to offer something fun and memorable for visitors.
Retail Volunteer
Everyone likes a bit of retail therapy, don’t they? Retail Assistants offer this vital service for all of our visitors. They love helping people find just the thing they’re looking for, and helping us achieve our sales targets, so everyone’s happy!
Raffle Ticket Seller
Are you a natural at sales or someone who loves meeting new people to have a good chat? Our raffle ticket sellers are great at encouraging visitors to spend just an extra pound with us which goes a long way to raising vital funds needed to support our conservation projects. 
Garden Volunteer
If you love gardens as much as we do then you’ll know they need a lot of care and attention.
Working as part of a team, our Volunteer Gardeners help with the upkeep, organic development and protection of the garden so that it can be enjoyed by all our visitors.
