A non-profit, charitable organization such as SPLPS simply cannot exist without the support of volunteers.
They are the lifeblood of the organization, helping to take on the many day-to-day tasks required to keep our operations running effectively, and helping to build and steer the organization to a long-term, stable, future. There are many opportunities for people to get directly involved in contributing – hands on – to help create the kind of dynamic, responsive and diligent organization we all want to see.
Please see below for upcoming and ongoing volunteer opportunities with the Sheringham Point Lighthouse Preservation Society. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact us and let us know. We will be in touch as soon as possible.
