Join us for the Big Help Out!

Heard of the Big Help Out? It’s the chance to join others to make a difference in your community this spring. From its launch on 8 May’s Coronation Bank Holiday, we’ll be blitzing through jobs with projects that make volunteering easy, welcoming and worthwhile. Through the Big Help Out you can meet others in your area, use your skills and gain new ones. Organisations big and small across the country are joining in.

If you can spare a day, a week, a month or come along seasonally, you can help as a one-off or have regular input. We’ll have ongoing projects and at least one specific help-out day, including during Volunteer Week in early June. 

We’re splitting projects up so you can be part of one that suits you. Join the Tidy Team for general grounds work, or Wild Weeders in the gardens … or be a Path Pal and help to finish upgrading the Path of the Little People. Good with a brush? Join the Cabin Crew to help refresh our cabins. Prefer to be indoors? The Friendly Force will be spring cleaning the main house along with our Kitchen Ninjas. Or get involved in our outdoor learning work by helping the Holiday Hub team prep our popular kids’ summer activity programme.

Whether you have special expertise or just some time to spare, this is the way in to a great community. Specific projects will be announced soon but in the meantime, to register your interest get in touch with us on or call 01899 850228
