Make the most of your extra leap year day

Volunteers in pauper costume picking oakum

If you have resolved to do something different this New Year why not let the Workhouse volunteers inspire you?

Join the volunteer team on 29 February, 10.30-12noon when they will hold their annual ‘Taste of Volunteering’ session. Be inspired by the range of roles on offer and talk to those who are active in the different volunteer teams. From researchers to room guides and gardeners there is something to suit all. This year we are particularly looking for volunteer storytellers, so an additional taster day has been arranged on 8 March, 2-4pm. Please pre-book for either of these free events by calling 01636 817260.

‘The more I get involved the more I want to do, I hope to progress up the ranks from playing pauper to becoming Master soon!’ Alan Viles, learning volunteer.
