Meet Hannah one of our Falconry and Wildlife Volunteers

“My favourite part (of Volunteering at Leeds Castle) is being able to take a break from working life, have some breathing space outside and be around the amazing birds…no two days are the same.”

The whole team, staff and volunteers, are so friendly… we all help each other to be the best version of ourselves and grow to give the birds the best care possible. It will be quite daunting at first but once you start you won’t want to stop, it will become your favourite day of the week.’


Meet Sally one of our Castle Storyteller Volunteers

“I have only been volunteering since May this year, but I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Since being retired in 2020 I realised I was missing something. I found it in Leeds, working in the castle with a lovely team of people has been a great experience…”
