Volunteer Open Day

Posted in Events by cata on 12th March 2024

A perfect opportunity to meet the team and see the railway.

Are you interested in volunteering for a heritage steam railway? Or perhaps you have some spare time you are looking to fill while keeping your skills up-to-date and meeting new people. The Bodmin Railway volunteer workforce is the beating heart of Bodmin Railway. At the station, they have a plethora of jobs that they always need help with, from signing writing, to steam footplate crew, to hospitality and Booking Office staff, to office administration help.

Just because they specialise in steam engines, please do not forget that they also need those who specialise in specific trades, such as plumbing, electricians, carpenters, or even horticulture. Those who have passions for IT or technology would be of tremendous help with the running of our ticketing systems, marketing, or any IT issues our staff may face.

They would also love to take on volunteers with a passion for photography and videography to help out with content creation, marketing material, and photographing events.

However you can help, in whatever way and for however long, they would love your help! Enrich your life by enriching others through volunteering.
