We have a vibrant volunteer programme at Bore Place. Our volunteers are donating their time regularly and bringing skills, knowledge and energy to make Bore Place a brilliant place to stay or visit and enhancing our natural environment.
New volunteers are always welcome. Below are a few examples of how you can get involved, but check out our Jobs page too for specialist unpaid roles. Also, don’t be afraid to get in touch if you have a different skillset or specific hard-earned experience that you would like to contribute – we are always open to ideas!
Bough Beech Practical Conservation Volunteer – Come and join the team twice monthly to help keep the reserve at Bough Beech as rich, biodiverse and beautiful as possible. The reservoir is a site of great ecological importance and home to some rare species – get hands on and help us to keep their habitat healthy. Why not have a look at our blog to see what they have been achieving recently.
Garden Volunteer – Join one of our regular groups and help us maintain the gardens at Bore Place. Our garden volunteers help keep the grounds looking stunning and create vital, colourful habitats for pollinators and birds. Groups currently run on Mondays and Fridays.
Fundraising Volunteer – Fundraise on behalf of Bore Place and help us continue to deliver our education programmes and allow children and marginalised communities to connect with nature. You could host events or complete a personal challenge on our behalf and we would support you every step of the way.
Education Volunteer – Are you a crafter, a wildlife nerd, a dab hand at DIY? If you have a particular skill you would like to share perhaps you might like to come and deliver a workshop or learning session for the community. If you are looking to gain more education experience, maybe you can offer an extra pair of hands at some of the sessions we already run for schools, young people and life-long learners.
If you are interested in any of these roles or contributing something else to Bore Place, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Drop us a line on 01732 463255 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or register your interest on this form.
