What some of our volunteers say

"When I think about being a volunteer at the Cathedral it makes me smile! The building, its history, the staff, the other volunteers and the visitors from all around the world just make it so worthwhile. It’s time well spent!" Lydia, Welcomer 

"As a tower tour guide you meet interesting and enthusiastic people and share with them amazing views of the interior of the Cathedral." Geoffrey, Cathedral Guide 

“It is a privilege to be a volunteer in this Holy place.  Our Cathedral is a treasure-trove of antiquities.  Speaking with visitors not only from the British Isles, but worldwide too, whilst bringing its hidden social history to life, is extremely rewarding.”  Margaret, Information Guide
