Corporate and Group Volunteering
If you’re looking for a team building day with your employees or group and wish to support a charity at the same time, Belton is a great place to choose.
We have a dedicated programme of exciting and interesting activities for groups to participate in while helping our Garden or Ranger teams. Depending on the time of year we can accommodate different tasks on the same day for large groups. In the past teams have got stuck in repairing fences, removing weeds from Towthorpe Pond, planting trees, or doing garden maintenance.
The skills and energy from team days are hugely valuable to the National Trust, helping us to achieve projects within a day.
To host a team building day, we kindly ask for a donation of £25 per person. The donations support the restoration work of the gardens and parkland at Belton.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pre-visit to Belton, so we can discuss details and ensure the day meets your requirements. Please let us know what you’re looking to get out of the day so we can tailor it to your needs.
Thank you to all our volunteers who give their time to support the National Trust in many different roles.
