17/08/14 Volunteer At Kent Life - Access great events for free

Fancy looking after farmyard animals, putting your acting skills to the test as a costumed character, or maybe caring for a medieval herb garden?

Kent Life Heritage Farm Park, near Maidstone, launches a new Volunteer Scheme this week, giving everyone the chance to enjoy their passion and help make a real difference at one of the county’s best-loved attractions.

In return for giving just 30 hours of your time in a calendar year, you will be given a Volunteer Pass entitling you to free access to all of Kent Life’s fantastic events, which include the annual Hops ‘n’ Harvest Beer Festival, Christmas on the Home Front, and the hugely popular Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular. The Volunteer Pass will also give you 20% off refreshments at Dotty’s Tearoom.

Kent Life general manager Emily Hirons says: “Volunteers are incredibly important to us because we simply couldn’t do all the wonderful work we do without them.

“The opportunities are really varied and adaptable to your skills and interests. You can work in the farmyard with the animals, help us with the gardening, dress up as a character in one of our historic houses, or simply help out in the office.

“If you have a real passion for what you enjoy, a fun and positive attitude, and are keen to support the great team we have here, we want to hear from you, whatever your age!

“The scheme is very flexible so you can choose what days you work. As long as you give us 30 hours of your time in a year, you can enjoy lots of great entertainment and fun days out here at Kent Life for free.”
