Volunteering 2018-03-09T13:14:53+00:00

We have an amazing team of volunteers and we’re always looking to add to it.

Our volunteers do everything, from cheering on marathon runners, speaking at events, to working for our admin team at our National Centre outside Bristol. No matter how much or how little time you can give, it all makes a difference and makes a big difference to the number of people we can help. You’ll be able to bring valuable experience and skills from whatever walk of life you’ve come from and you’ll meet new people to work with for a common cause – and we always try hard to find the right opportunity for you. You’ll be well supported by our Volunteer Manager and by the team you work with.

We have a wide range of roles, from helping out in the beautiful gardens, to driving, office administration, marketing, cooking and retail work. View our current opportunities.

Garden volunteers meet once a week to care for and cultivate the grounds of the National Centre. The gardens are a haven of tranquility maintained throughout the year, come rain or shine and make our home a wonderful place to come and wander.

Pressed for time

If you’re keen to help, but have a hectic schedule already and can only spare the odd few hours, there’s still lots you can do to help. Cheering on marathon runners, shaking a bucket at a collection, or helping direct guests at a fashion show or at a garden day only require you to turn up, help out, and then get back on with what you were doing. You’ll have helped us enormously for the few hours you can spare.

To get involved, call Fundraising on 01275 370 073 or email fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk.

If you would like to volunteer, please email fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk with the store name and the times you will be available.

The National Centre is our base of operations and offers a warm welcome in an idyllic location.

Why not volunteer with us and find out how you and your colleagues can invest your time by getting stuck in with the gardening team or pick an indoor project at our National Centre?  Contact our Corporate Volunteering team here.

We also have opportunities available for volunteers across the UK to work with our Regional Development teams and help us with events and courses away from our National Centre. You can view our current opportunities here.
