The National Trust relies on thousands of volunteers to help run the places they own and keep them open for visitors - there are over 200 volunteers at Baddesley Clinton alone!
Have you ever thought about volunteering for the National Trust?
There are many roles you could volunteer for from welcoming visitors as they arrive to guiding them round the house and telling the stories they contain. You could serve visitors a nice cup of tea in the teashop or sell them a souvenir in the giftshop. You could help look after the wonderful collections of artefacts or make the beautiful flower arrangements in the rooms. Out-of-doors there are often vacancies in the gardens and parklands.

Volunteering is a great way to do something valuable with your spare time, and a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
