Whether you have a few hours to spare each week, or a regular day, there are various volunteering opportunities in the house or in the grounds.
Why do people volunteer ?
For some people volunteering may be something that they have always wanted to do but never knew who to contact or they didn't have the time. Others find it's the chance to apply existing skills, learn new skills, make new friends or to gain personal experience for the future. Some want a change of career and try volunteering in that environment first.
For people who have retired, volunteering gives them the opportunity to give something back to the local community.
People who can't work full time, through no fault of their own, find volunteering a great way of keeping in touch with the working world.
Volunteering Activities at Mellor House
You can support us in a variety of ways
- Make a one-off or regular donation
- Use Gift Aid to make your donation go further
- Leaving a legacy or making an "In memoriam "gift.
- Buy tickets for our own events such as Christmas Delights and our Valentines Ball.
- Taking part in an event
- Recycle you mobile phone.
Taking part in an event to raise funds is both rewarding personally and good fun at the same time.
You might want to do a parachute jump, bike ride, or abseil down a viaduct. Alternatively you may want to organise your own event, such as a car wash, custard pie fight, and head shaving or raise funds for us by taking part in a sponsored event, like a sponsored run. Please let us know how we can help you to make the most from your participation.
The company you work for may match the funds you raise for us, you HR department should be able to advise you who to speak to.
You can create your own fundraising page on Justgiving and email your friends and family the link to your page.
Friends of Mellor Country House
We are establishing a group of local people to help in the day to day maintenance of the house, grounds and equipment. Make new friends and reward yourselves by enjoying the "Feel Good" factor. For good physical exercise more productive than the gym and at no expense, even if you can only manage a small amount of time, every little helps, please join us, you will be happy you did.
For whatever reason, volunteering gives many benefits to the individuals or groups involved, and to the charity.
