Arts & Crafts Centre Volunteer

Arts & Crafts Centre Volunteer
Henshaws
Description of the role:

Here at Henshaws we are always desperate for volunteers to help out with our events and special occasions.

We often take art makers and students out and about for collections in the community, for example into supermarkets, and can always use a few extra bodies for an hour or two.

On Knaresborough Bed Race day, the Arts and Crafts Centre is a hub of live music and fun and we are always short of people to help out on our stalls, like a “Hook a Duck”. Next year’s event will be on Saturday June 12th.

Throughout August when the beach comes to the Arts and Crafts Centre we are always in need of willing helpers to aid with everything from dishing up burgers on the BBQ to serving Prosecco or selling buckets and spades!

At our Christmas Concert in December it is wonderful to have help with the mulled wine and mince pies or the sale of raffle tickets.

We are always immensely grateful for volunteers in every capacity, from a couple of hours weeding in the grounds to the distribution of our collection boxes in the local community or the selling of raffle tickets and Christmas cards. I would be delighted to hear from you and perhaps give you a tour of our amazing centre so that you can see for yourself what we do and how you can help.

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

Whatever your interests or skill set, we can find something which suits you, where you can truly make a difference and add value to the lives of many.

Practical information:

We are always happy to support you in finding the volunteer role which is the best fit.
