Are you and your company looking for a day out with a difference? Bring your colleagues to the zoo to volunteer and spend your day making a difference!
Five Sisters Zoo offers companies the chance to spend a day away from the office volunteering at the zoo. You could help out with anything from planting and weeding, to painting and cleaning.
If you are interested in volunteering with your company please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please include details on when you would like to volunteer and how many people you would be bringing along so we can check availability.
Groups normally arrive for 9:30am. They will be greeted by a member of zoo staff and given a welcome and orientation to the zoo covering any health and safety issues that may arise.
You will be allocated a task for that day (unfortunately we often can’t tell you exactly what you will be doing in advance). Once you have been assigned a task you will be left to it, but don’t worry – if you have any questions a member of staff is never far away!
Please be aware that most of the tasks for our corporate volunteers are outdoors and often physically demanding. Please make sure to wear sturdy footwear, and old clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Please bring your own gardening/work gloves.
Please have a morning and an afternoon break. There is complimentary tea and coffee in our cafe, and our staff will know to expect you. You are welcome to bring a picnic for your lunch, or you can buy lunch from our cafe. For larger groups, the cafe staff may take your lunch order during your morning coffee break so they can have it ready for you.
Groups normally finish their day at around 3:30pm.
