Corporate volunteering at Rainham Hall

Corporate volunteering is a fantastic and rewarding way to support our work at Rainham Hall

Join our Community Gardener and work outdoors with your colleagues to develop the National Trust’s only Community Garden through planting new borders, building new paths, creating wildlife habitat, and working on outdoor art projects.

" Fantastic day! We'll have aching muscles tomorrow but definitely worth it"
- GlaxoSmithKline volunteer group

Corporate Challenge Days in the garden at Rainham Hall are different every time. You could be building steps, cutting back shrubs, creating outdoor art, laying paths, building dens or creating wildlife habitat. Whatever you do, it will be a day of creativity and learning with a definite sense of achievement at the end. Experienced National Trust staff are on-hand to help and give advice so that you and your colleagues can focus on enjoying your day of volunteering away from the office.

As a Community Garden opened in 2015, there are constantly new redevelopment projects going on, led by the Gardeners and regular volunteers. We offer a rare opportunity to be involved in the transformation of a garden, which provides much needed green space in an industrial area. The Garden at Rainham Hall is a hub for local families, schoolchildren, and SEN groups to learn about nature, wildlife, and growing their own food.

Participating in a Corporate Challenge Day at Rainham Hall is a great way for your business and your employees to give back to the local community. Your employees can make a huge impact on our work. What’s more, our Corporate Challenge Days are great for team building and creating an energetic environment where your staff can discover more about themselves and their colleagues.
