Volunteer Open Day

An open day is being held to sign-up new volunteers who would like to help-out at our unique historic Workhouse & Infirmary in Southwell, Nottingham.

  • Booking essential

The open day is taking place at the Workhouse on Saturday, 29th June, from 11am until 2pm. Please arrive at 11am for an introduction and tour.

Senior Volunteer and Community Officer Janet Overfield Shaw said: “Volunteering with the National Trust is a great way to use your skills, knowledge and experience in a new setting and make a real impact for a great cause.

"Beyond that, these are opportunities to connect with new people, learn something new and contribute to our heritage.”

While we welcome volunteers in all areas, we are particularly keen to sign up people who can offer some spare time on weekends.
