‘I volunteer to give back for some of the pleasure I get from doing things at the Maltings. It is also fun to be able to steward at events which I enjoy especially for National theatre screened plays and films. The main reason for volunteering was to give me a purpose in life.’Marion Nicholson, Volunteer

Maltings Champions: Could you lend us a hand?

Volunteers support many of our activities at Farnham Maltings, from helping with brochure distribution to assisting artists in the community.

The time and expertise that volunteers bring to Farnham Maltings is of enormous value and we are always looking to expand our team of volunteers.

We are currently looking for a few individuals to volunteer a bit of their time to help spread the Maltings message:

  • Publicity Distribution: We are seeking outgoing, friendly and reliable people to assist with the distribution of brochures and publicity material throughout the town. If you think you could help us out by distributing a few flyers and posters in your local shops, cafes and hairdressers  – or amongst your friends and clubs – we would love to hear from you.
  • Flyers for schools: We are looking for a small group to help us prepare packets of flyers to distributed to local schools. This will be a relaxed, social opportunity to meet other volunteers.

We also have opportunities in the following areas:

  • Wild Card: If you are interested in pursuing another area of activity let us know – we always do our best to match people’s experience and aspirations with opportunities.
