Give a Day

Family Activity Event Volunteer

Every Wednesday throughout the summer holidays (28th July to 25th August 2021) The Hold will be hosting exciting events designed for children ages 5-11. Event themes and activities are based on current exhibitions, seasons, and national holidays - our first series of activities are inspired by our Brick History exhibition. 

We need a team of friendly volunteers to successfully help us to deliver the family events - you could be assisting participants complete activities, greeting people as they arrive, or directing guests arriving by car to the car park. 

You can view the full events programme and find out specific dates on our Ticketsource page: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/whats-on/ipswich/the-hold 

The activities run throughout the day and you can decide whether you would like to volunteer for a full or half day. 

Once you have signed up for this challenge, the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator will be in contact and will organise for you to add your preferred dates and times to the rota.
