Free residential event for accepted volunteers
Each year we set a week aside to focus on working in the grounds and woodlands at Blairmore to ensure its upkeep. We invite you to join us for this week as part of our extended family, working alongside our full-time team to have some fun whilst working together.
You don’t need any particular skills – just a good level of physical fitness and a willingness to work as part of a team. There will be a variety of work to do so any skills you can bring would be greatly appreciated!
Each day will begin with a time of worship, prayer and an inspirational devotion and the working day will run from 10am – 4pm with breaks in between. The evenings are free for you to relax and unwind. We would ask that you join us for the full week. However, if this is not possible, but you would still like to come, please contact us so that we can discuss other possible arrangements.
Since we will be working outside, you will need to bring suitable clothing– whatever the weather!
Because you will be offering your skills, this event is free of charge and fully residential but we require further information from you before we can accept you as a volunteer. Please contact the office for a form.
The event starts with a 6 pm dinner and ends after breakfast on the final day. If taking public transportation, we do a pick up on the first day of the event at 4.15 pm and drop off on the last day at 9.45 am from Huntly, the nearest town. If booking online, please indicate your preference for Premium (2-3 person sharing, en-suite, restored in a lovingly, antique fashion) or Standard (3-person sharing, en-suite, modern renovation).
