Volunteers are vital to the success of this project to tell this incredible story – especially in welcoming visitors and helping them to make the most of their visit and understand more about the Camp and our Village.

We know that your time is so very precious. When you give some of that time to us you will be playing an important part in an incredible project and we will appreciate every minute you donate. But hopefully you appreciate some of the benefits from helping us and making a difference:

  • It is a chance to meet people
  • You can help secure the stories of the people involved in this story 100 years ago for the future
  • You can help visitors of all ages
  • You can join a fantastic team of volunteers
  • You can learn new things
  • You can gain valuable work experience


Do you have time to spare a few hours to come to welcome our visitors to the Centre? This could be just a few hours over our lunchtime periods or for a morning or afternoon when we have large groups or during busy periods? If so please do get in touch – we should love you to become part of the team.
