Volunteer with horses at Greatwood, Marlborough, Wiltshire

Greatwood is a charity for ex racehorses. We have opportunities to volunteer throughout the school holidays.

Volunteers would have the opportunity to;

  • Work with the horses, Shetland ponies, goats, chickens, donkeys and geese
  • Spend time outdoors getting dirty tending our vegetable plots and polytunnel
  • Offer time to a worthwhile cause

We can provide a range of inspiring volunteering opportunities for Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh`s Award participants, please make sure you check with your DofE leader before starting to volunteer. Participants are required to attend one of our training days to learn about how to stay safe when caring for animals before starting the volunteer days.

You need enthusiasm for the animal world but no specific knowledge or experience. Full training is given and activities are adaptable to volunteers’ personal skills and abilities from age 14 years upwards.

We are based at Rainscombe Hill Farm, Clench Common, Marlborough, SN8 4DT
