balmoral passengersVolunteers - an essential role

As a volunteer, you can play a critical role in supporting the future operation of the BALMORAL. And it is great fun being part of the Team!

Each winter, the ship returns to lay-up in Bristol for annual maintenance and improvements, and a team of ‘on-board’ volunteers sets to work, each Monday and Friday, on everything from simple (but vital!) husbandry such as cleaning and painting, to more complex projects such as engineering works and accommodation refits.

This support has always been, and continues to be, invaluable, and if you join the team you can be sure of a warm welcome!

During the spring and summer, we also need volunteers to assist in admin and marketing roles, both from home and at our planned office in the centre of Bristol, as well as assistance in ports, piers and harbours distributing publicity and organising "Pier Hosts" to meet passengers arriving to sail on Balmoral. On board ship, we need volunteers to assist in the Gift Shop, for commentaries and in the dining saloon. Plenty of fresh sea air!

Why should I volunteer?

Volunteering with the BALMORAL gives you the opportunity to meet new, like minded people, and to be part of a sociable team that keeps this much-loved ship in operation, and a heritage asset that we can all be proud of.

Some (although not all) volunteering tasks involve physical activity to varying degrees, which can help you to keep active and healthy. And there is no better reward than seeing the ship full of passengers in the peak of summer, all appreciating the unique coastal cruising experience that you have helped to make possible. Do give it a try!

This year, we need you more than ever…

This year, we plan to re-commence sailings in June so we need even more volunteers to not only help maintain Balmoral but to assist with commercial activities to bring the maximum number of passengers on board and give them a great day out to remember, so that they return with their friends for more Balmoral cruising!

We must also keep fund raising to pay for expensive re-fits, as well as help organise events on Balmoral during the winter to earn more money to keep her afloat.

No matter how much or how little time you can spare, if you are interested in helping to keep BALMORAL sailing, please take a look in a little more detail at the jobs available by clicking the link below to our volunteer web site.
