Would you like to volunteer at this year’s Lambing Festival?
It may seem a long way off but we’re already thinking about spring… Our Lambing Weekends are our busiest events of the year! We welcome up to 2,000 visitors a day to see the lambs and other animals on the Earth Trust Farm. These events simply would not be possible without the help of a small army of volunteers! We need help in a variety of different areas from preparing the site beforehand to selling tickets and welcoming visitors, helping with children’s games and craft activities, serving refreshments in our Poem Tree Cafe, and assistance guiding visitors around the site. We always do our best to match volunteers up with tasks that they are happy to do and all volunteers are well supported by members of staff on the day.
The Lambing Weekends in 2019 are 23rd-24th and 30th-31st March and we’d be delighted if you can spare a few hours, a whole day (9am-5pm) or maybe even a couple of days, whatever works for you. We’d also like to hear from you if you’re available during the week before the event to help us prepare and set up or can assist with the distribution of marketing materials.
This is a great opportunity to be part of a friendly and enthusiastic team. These events are great fun and volunteering is a great way to support the work of Earth Trust. On event days we’ll provide lunch and plenty of tea and coffee, and all volunteers are supported by a member of staff throughout. Register your interest today!
What do volunteers do at Lambing?
If you’ve attended one of our Lambing Weekends, then you’ve already seen our volunteers in action, working closely alongside Earth Trust staff.
They can be found demonstrating craft activities, greeting visitors at the entrance, helping in the café, and guiding visitors around the site. Beforehand, volunteers help with distributing marketing materials, creating signage and preparing the site.
What will volunteers get out of Lambing?
Volunteering at Lambing provides volunteers with the chance to help at a very busy public event. There are a wide range of roles and we always do our best to match volunteers up with tasks that they are happy to do. In return, volunteers have the opportunity to work as part of a team, put their skills to good use or even learn some new ones. All our volunteers are well supported by members of Earth Trust staff on the day and we provide lunch and plenty of tea and coffee!
