The Big Help Out with Chiswick House and Gardens Trust

Tuesday, May 14, 2024 - 16:30

Chiswick House & Gardens Trust are inviting people to come and get involved with a day of gardening. It’s all part of national volunteering festival The Big Help Out (this year during National Volunteers Week), and will take place on Saturday 8 June from 10.30pm to 12.30pm.

The Big Help Out is a great opportunity for you to roll up your sleeves, get some fresh air, learn something new and contribute to the community. Open to families, local residents, keen gardeners and newbies, everyone who gets involved will help the charity to improve the meadow and smarten up the appearance at Burlington Gate. 

It’s a one-off chance to volunteer at Chiswick House & Gardens. Chiswick House & Gardens also have several other volunteering opportunities available throughout the year.  

As a charity, Chiswick House & Gardens rely on the generosity of supporters to keep the House and Gardens looking spectacular for their thousands of visitors every year. By taking part in the activities participants will be able to get a taster of the work that goes into sustaining this special haven in West London.

Rosie Fyles, Head of Gardens at Chiswick House & Gardens Trust, said: "Volunteering offers a wonderful opportunity to explore, be outside, connect with others who share your interests, and make a positive impact on your community. We’re hoping for stunning weather, lots of smiles, and a shared feeling that we’ve made a difference.”

As part of the Big Help Out 2024 millions of people will be mobilised across the country for a weekend of social transformation and connection through the power of volunteering, across every sector and in every community of the UK.
