Meet our volunteers

We spoke to some of our dedicated volunteers to find out how they get involved with the organisation and what they love about their role.


I became a volunteer about 3 years ago when I moved to Cumbria. My main reason for volunteering was to meet people and make some new pals. I work in the office on a Wednesday morning with a great bunch of people. I am a full time carer and volunteering at the Kirkgate gives me a break and makes me happy and chilled.


I started off doing Front of House for the films but now I do daytime Box Office and I’m also on the bar rota. I’ve always been interested in the arts and I think its vital to support arts in the community. The best thing about volunteering is the interaction with lots of different people at different events. It’s very varied and helps to keeps my mind open to new things.
