Bring Trerice to life

Child trying on armour at Trerice, Cornwall

Join the volunteer coordinators on Monday 13 February from 11am - 3pm and find out what your next adventure could be.

Our 130 volunteers are quite simply the lifeblood of Trerice, without them we couldn't keep it going.

Why volunteer?

They have so many reasons why they're with us. We asked them what they felt some of the benefits were:

  • Trying something different or indulging your interests

  • Helping to look after this special place and bring it to life

  • Join a great family and make new friends

  • Feeling good about doing something worthwhile

  • Learn new skills and enhance your CV

  • Very flexible with days and hours for volunteering

  • Knowing that you're helping our visitors have a great day out

  • Volunteering puts you at the heart of the National Trust. You’ll join a family of thousands looking after our special places.

Not to mention the social events that happen through out the year, from bring and share lunches to BBQs and quiz nights.
