Volunteering Information Days
The Abney Park Trust runs on the power of our volunteers. We need the help of all those who love Abney Park and want to see it protected and enhanced for future generations. If you think you might be interested, come and find out more on one of the Trust’s drop-in days:
23 October 1-5.30pm
24 October 12-5.30pm
where you can meet Trustees, staff and volunteers and discuss volunteering opportunities, from stewarding at our ever-popular theatrical events to manning the visitors centre, helping out on a fun day, or dozens of other opportunities!
If you can’t make our drop-in days, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop in at the visitors’ centre and introduce yourself!
