Why volunteer?

There are many benefits to becoming a volunteer:

  • Make friends with people! Our volunteers enjoy meeting new people, having fun, and making creative events and activities happen in Pembrokeshire.
  • It is great work experience. Whether you want to work in the arts or not you will learn transferable skills. This can be used on a CV to show that you are part of your community. You will also gain real skills and experience that will boost your confidence.
  • Learn something new. As part of an event or project you can learn plenty of new skills from our other volunteers and artists. This can be varied as each event requires different skills. There is also the opportunity to undertake courses should you wish to.
  • All the arts for all the people. As a SPAN Volunteer, you can be safe in the knowledge that you are contributing to sustaining the arts in Pembrokeshire and enabling everyone to be inspired and entertained and not just the few.
  • Increase your wellbeing. Volunteering can boost your self-esteem, offer a sense of purpose, and help you feel happier.

Meet some volunteers

  • Ann Maidment
    Events and projects
    “I volunteer because I believe strongly in the positive effects arts activities have in the community. They bring people together, improve health and well-being, and help to combat isolation and loneliness. With Span, I feel appreciated, part of a team, and confident in the work Span is doing. Onwards!”

    Stage manager
    “At age 12 I ad-libbed in a school operetta and got a laugh. As a trumpeter I have always loved the stage but never minded not earning much. I cut my teeth as a stage manager at Glastonbury. It’s not about the money, it’s the smell of the grease paint and the roar of the crowd. All aspects of running a show are rewarding, be it cloakroom, box office steward and all the other cogs that turn to put on a show. lt’s grrrreat!”
