Volunteer at the Palm House
Sefton Park Palm House on the hunt for new volunteers to help at iconic venue
Sefton Park Palm House is on the lookout for new volunteers to join its successful volunteers programme, as the Grade II* listed building gets underway with their exciting National Lottery Heritage Fund project.
With 41 people already volunteering at the Palm House, new volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in a number of roles; including leading guided tours and introductory talks, at this very exciting part of the Palm House history as the National Lottery Signage and Interpretation project begins to take shape.
Looking to attract friendly, energetic and enthusiastic individuals, the Palm House has welcomed a diverse range of volunteers over the years, from students looking to enhance their CVs, to professionals in need of time banking opportunities, and the retired with life experiences to share.
Playing a valuable role in enabling visitors to the Palm House enjoy their visit, volunteers will also have the chance to become part of a dedicated team, meet new friends, as well as enjoying new experiences, in the process learning new skills.
Kate Martinez, head of external relations of Sefton Park Palm House, said:
“We pride ourselves on the famous welcome that we give to our visitors at Sefton Park Palm House, and our volunteers play a huge role in that, as they are the first faces that people meet when they walk through our doors. With thanks to National Lottery Players we are now able to welcome new members to our happy team.
“Palm House stewards have an important part to play in ensuring that our visitor experience continues to stay exemplary. Our stewards will have the opportunity to learn new skills as well as making new friends and gaining experiences that will stay with them for a very long time.”
With volunteers required from 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm seven days a week, Palm House Stewards will also receive an induction before their role begins, as well as suitable in-house training from Kate and the Palm House team.
If you would like to join the Volunteer Team at the Palm House we will be hosting an Induction:
10am – 12pm
🎉Come and speak to our volunteers who will tell you more about the events, activities and projects that have been made possible by National Lottery Players.
The Palm House is supported by @heritagefunduk 💚
