Corporate Volunteering

There is the possibility of work within the Animal, Gardening or Maintenance departments, with the additional benefit of time spent within one of Berkshire’s most beautiful wildlife parks and gardens.

Small, medium or large groups can usually be accommodated, and there is time at the end of the day in which to explore the Park and ride on the miniature train!

The Beale Centre is available as a meeting place, and catering can be arranged, either within the Park restaurant or in the Beale Centre, for a reasonable cost. Groups may bring their own refreshments, if they wish. We recommend that each member of the group brings a bottle of water that can be re-filled on site.

You may wish to visit the Park, in advance, to carry out a risk assessment – and clothing and equipment requirements can be discussed at the same time.

Examples of tasks available to corporate volunteers are as follows:

Animal Department

Habitat maintenance/clearing and enclosure maintenance.

Days available: any weekday.


Horticultural work such as weeding, planting, general garden maintenance, some construction, renovation and project work.

Days available: any weekday.

Ground Maintenance

Physical work such as building projects and painting gates and fences.

Days available: any weekday.
