Volunteers & Friends

Volunteer in a beautiful environment and enjoy new experiences while learning new skills. Join our group of Volunteers and Friends today.

Volunteer at Holt Hall

Would you like to help with conservation work in the grounds, lend a hand in the walled garden or work in the popular cafe on open days?  We have a core group of friendly volunteers who work closely with the Holt Hall team and are always looking for new members to join their group.  The volunteers provide invaluable  support to the Holt Hall staff while gaining new skills and experiences.  We have regular volunteer groups working at the Hall on Monday and Wednesday mornings in the grounds and walled garden, plus a group of volunteers who run the cafe during our busy open days.

If you would like more information about volunteering at Holt Hall, please call the office on 01263 713117 or email holthall@educatorsolutions.org.uk

FOHH Bursary Scheme

The FOHH Bursary scheme has been set up to promote access to the full range of Holt Hall services and maximise opportunities for young people to:

  • Access Holt Hall’s high quality residential and day visit experiences
  • Participate in work experience and other developmental experiences for young people, potentially leading to employment in the environmental sector
  • Inclusion in special projects run by Holt Hall or its partners in support of the outcomes promoted by FOHH
 Bursary funding testimonials

‘Can I say thank you again for the bursary grants. The two children in question have benefitted enormously from the visit to Holt Hall. They have become much more confident within the classroom and more able to take part in team work activities. Their parents have also noticed a change in confidence levels at home. Without the bursary, these two children would not have attended.’

‘We would like to thank your FOHH for the bursary they gave a pupil in our school so that they could attend our Holt Hall residential.  By using the bursary for one, this allowed both pupils to come on our residential. The boys really benefited from the experience as one is quite shy and his confidence really improved over the trip – having the responsibility for his own room and making his own choices showed him that he could be independent. This has carried on back at school as he now volunteers more in class and is more independent when working. Thank you once again.’

  • Volunteer in the Courtyard Cafe at one of Holt Hall’s open days – all proceeds from the cafe go to FOHH bursary fund.
  • If you would like to support FOHH with a donation, donations are welcomed via cheque, cash or paypal.
