Garden Volunteers

Our garden volunteer’s day is on a Wednesday from 10am-4pm.  All are welcome to  join in a variety of tasks depending on the season and the weather.  Jessica and John lead the team

It’s a great way for people from all walks of life to connect and work together in a relaxed environment. A delicious lunch is provided (we can cater for gluten-free diets on request).

There are many health and well-being benefits of a day in the garden


Regular volunteer quote:

I am retired and live on my own so having somewhere to go where I can be useful and meet up with new friends is a great thing. I look forward to going to Allanton and come away feeling happy that I had been part of a team contributing to something worthwhile.

Regular volunteer quote:

When I was on the road to mental and physical recovery (from a totally negative way of life) I happened upon voluntary work at Allanton…  when doing a job at Allanton you can’t help but realise you have done something positive… as an individual and as part of a team.
