Why Volunteer for the Harbourview Sculpture Trail?

Volunteering is a truly rewarding experience and results in a wonderful sense of community. It allows you to do something for the wider world you live in, by reaching out and giving back. Acting for no reward other knowing you have helped someone else will feed back to you ten fold! And being a participant in this event will bring you together with other like-minded people who may not have met otherwise.

In return for committing to a minimum of 3 shifts, all our volunteers will receive a mountain of gratitude, unlimited access to the Trail during opening hours, a 2016 Catalogue, one complimentary adult ticket to give away to a friend and a 2016 Volunteer’s T Shirt.

If you are interested in coming on board we would love to hear from you. Just fill in this form and we’ll be in touch.
