in preserving places of historic interest and natural beauty. They
provide practical support through fund raising, promotion of the
National Trust locally and by voluntary work at local properties.
Membership of the Centre
is open to National Trust members, but under the revised constitution
is also open to individuals who are not national members of the
National Trust, but who perform more than 50 hours voluntary work a
year for the National Trust and hold a current Volunteer Card.
Membership gives you the opportunity of meeting other National Trust
members as well as taking part in the extensive range of activities
organised by the Centre.
