The working holidays have 12 places for volunteers and are a great way of introducing visitors to the every day work of our wardening teams, our properties and are a great opportunity to meet new and old friends. This summer we had volunteers from all over the UK as well as France, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany.
In their spare time the holiday volunteers went kayaking with one of our ambassador businesses, visited the theatre and other NT properties including St Michaels Mount, and explored the Lizard coastline.

The National Trust team all had a great time here and were glad to be able to support the Holifield Farm Project, who put on the event using only green energy. We're just as excited about the programme of local events to come in the next few months, so look out for us at Lizard Lifeboat Day on Sunday 15th August!
