Discover volunteering at The Commandery, Worcester

Volunteering event Sunday 7 May, 11.30am – 1pm

Worcester’s historic Commandery is looking for volunteers to support the museum and its activities and is calling on anyone interested to attend a volunteer recruitment event on Sunday 7 May, at The Commandery, Worcester.

The Commandery offers a variety of public-facing and behind-the-scenes opportunities for volunteers, such as greeting visitors, helping to make family activities and school trips a success, and keeping the historic grounds looking beautiful.

There are lots of benefits to volunteering including spending time with like-minded people, being part of a team, learning new skills, strengthening your CV or simply helping to preserve and share Worcestershire’s heritage.

Del, who is currently a gardening volunteer at The Commandery says “I really enjoy volunteering at The Commandery. Being outdoors and connecting with others is great for my mental wellbeing and I’m always learning new things.”

To mark His Majesty The King’s Coronation, communities are being asked to ‘Lend a hand, make a change’ by volunteering in their local community as part of The Big Help Out. Volunteering with The Commandery provides the perfect opportunity for people to lend a hand and make a difference.

Anyone interested in finding out more about volunteering at The Commandery can attend the event on Sunday 7 May. Please book a space by emailing or via the website:
