If the above matches yourself then we would love to hear from you. At Acorn Farm we are looking for volunteers over the age of 16 to assist in our small animal petting area over the school holidays, this would be between 24th July and 2nd September.

Becoming a volunteer is giving someone your time and the talents that you have achieved, along with this you are gaining some experience, confidence and friends. You will also have the satisfaction of helping both the visitors and the animals out.
