Growing Together – Building Communities

Corporate Volunteering

Experience how rewarding and fulfilling it is to help play a part in making a positive difference to someone’s life through corporate volunteering.

Achieve great things outside the office

Escape your desk and explore corporate volunteering in 22 acres of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including a Walled Kitchen Garden, Heritage Orchard, Ponds, Woodlands and Meadows.

Be part of our vision to become a beacon and landmark at the heart of the community, focusing on tackling food poverty, loneliness and rural isolation.

Make a difference by rewilding the meadows, ponds and woodlands, encouraging biodiversity and habitat regeneration, and growing food for our community food banks using organic no-dig techniques.

By donating your time and skills, help us deliver on our mission to teach people and their communities practical ways to sustain, grow, conserve, protect and improve the natural environment.

Team days

You can join in the work in our walled garden, woodlands or meadows with volunteers and staff to tackle jobs which would otherwise take the teams weeks to complete.

Groups can get involved in various tasks to care our site and help us deliver on our projects.

Get Stuck In and Make a Difference:

  • HOH days are a great way to show how your organisation plays a positive, responsible and active part in helping people within your local community.
  • A day with Hands of Hope can allow your employees to discover how to work cooperatively in a different setting – helping them to build new relationships and understandings.
  • Access heritage expertise, learn no-dig organic gardening techniques, acquire building and bricklaying skills, and help manage conservation and habitat sites.
  • Enjoy the peaceful setting – helping employees to improve their mental health, work through anxiety and allow time for contemplation.
  • Enjoy the fruits of your labour with lunch provided by our in-house chefs using freshly hand-picked ingredients supplied by our kitchen gardens.
  • Besides the fun and memories you create, go home with organic vegetables or hand-picked garden flowers.

“the team really enjoyed themselves”

Thank you both for a fantastic morning’s volunteering on Thursday, the team really enjoyed themselves. It was a first for a couple of our younger volunteers who had not done any gardening before, so a real experience for them.  The lunch was delicious too, so please thank your team of volunteers in the kitchen.

“a big thank you for yesterday”

Just to say a big thank you for yesterday, really enjoyed the day and hopefully we gave a little something towards the charity and the local community. The ongoing works look amazing, and I am confident that many people will benefit from such a wonderful environment. Thank you for lunch, the burgers lived up to expectation.
