Membership of WYNTV costs only £2.50/year and means that you are kept up to date with all news, upcoming tasks and social events.
Remember, you don't need to join the group to come on your first few tasks. You can try us out for free!
Volunteer Cards are the National Trust's way of thanking volunteers for their help over the course of a year. Cards are valid for a year from 1st April to 31st March. Cards entitle volunteers to free admission to all National Trust properties and a 20% discount in National Trust shops and restaurants/tearooms. Note that if you are already a National Trust member, you can use your volunteer card to admit a guest free of charge.
Volunteer Cards are issued (at the Trust’s discretion) to those members who have completed at least 50 volunteer hours in a calendar year, which normally equates to 8 of our task days.
If you have attended any working weekends or contributed to any non-WYNTV National Trust volunteer opportunities, these can be added to any work undertaken with our group to help you qualify for a Volunteer Card.
To preserve our unique character and our independence, to maximise our access to the widest possible range of properties (key to making our activities so enjoyable), and to minimise the financial and bureaucratic impact of our visits on the wardens and gardeners we work with, the group has chosen not to claim travelling expenses from the National Trust. An alternative for people who do wish to claim expenses is to join a local property-based group.
