    Why Volunteer?

    Volunteering at The Gasworks Sudbury is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and make a real impact in creating a welcoming community space for Sudbury Parish and its visitors.
    We welcome families that would like to volunteer together. Volunteering as a family gives you the chance to spend quality time together without the costs of a traditional day out.
