Space is available on this event! :-D

Volunteers working in the Othona grounds

If you’ve never tried one of these weeks you may not realise how special they are. Ideal for practical people who like to lend a hand and do something worthwhile.

Sharing jobs round the house and grounds we all get a real sense of achievement and camaraderie – working hard (up to 6 hours a day) but enjoying ourselves too with plenty of laughs and diversions.

We aim to vary the jobs to suit all abilities, both indoors and outdoors. At this time of year we're bound to have some apples to pick, but whether we'll be bottling juice this year is not yet certain. (2023 broke all our records of juice-making.)
