Volunteering at Trerice
If you’d like to make friends, meet like-minded people and donate your time get in touch with the team.
At Trerice the passion of our volunteers is an important part of the property. From a cheery hello in the car park to pruning in the garden there are volunteers donating their time to help look after Trerice. If you’d like to make friends, meet like-minded people and donate your time get in touch with the team. You don’t need to know the history of everything, just have a passion for sharing stories and this special place.
How can you help?
Our friendly room guides help visitors explore the beauty and history of Trerice and make them feel at home. Together with the wider team you’ll spend the day sharing stories, talking to new people and stewarding rooms to help look after Trerice.
If you love gardens as much as we do then you’ll know they need a lot of care and attention. The Cornish weather doesn’t always shine kindly on the garden team but volunteer gardeners do practical work to help keep Trerice in peak condition and looking eye catching.
Roll out the red carpet! We need to give a warm welcome, as well as all the important information, as visitors arrive in the car park at Trerice. You’ll point them towards their next destination, whether it’s the visitor reception or the best route home at the end of the day.
Do you like a good thriller? Or are you more of a romantic? Volunteers in the Trerice second-hand bookshop know where to find the best page turners on the shelves, and love helping get our bookshop ready for visitors to find something they will enjoy.
Are you a natural at sales, or someone who loves meeting new people? Our raffle ticket sellers are great at encouraging visitors to help, which boosts our funds so we can do more good work, and deliver more projects at Trerice.
Just imagine a world without cake! Restaurant assistants understand the importance of a little sit-down and help visitors to relax, refuel and refresh during their visit to Trerice.
Crafts and activities
Getting stuck in with families to make craft activities on a rainy day, giving children a hand ticking off some of their ‘#50 things to do before you’re 11¾’ or helping people hit the target during the summer with our archery GB arrows kit. These are just some of the ways you’ll be helping families get involved at Trerice and the best part is activities are seasonal so this role changes frequently!
If you’re interested in any of the above roles (or maybe something else) either email volunteer co-ordinator Alan Kent at email@example.com or give him a call on 01637 839922. Please note, Alan’s volunteering days are Monday and Thursday.
