Manning Clark House Rules of Association mch-rules-as-of-4-october-2012


Manning Clark house relies solely on donations and volunteers. If you have a special skill, and are willing to share it with the MCH community, please contact us by email or phone.

Volunteers help with gardening, supervising art exhibitions, book-keeping, marketing, hanging artworks, selling tickets at the door, looking after visiting celebrities and other tasks.

There are many advantages to volunteering: meeting interesting and like-minded people, making contributions to communities you value, using skills that you might not otherwise use, being appreciated by small organisations like ours.

All our volunteers get free entry to all events they have helped with, even if they’re not volunteering on the day.

Manning Clark House deeply appreciates all help, no matter how small. Get in touch with us to see how you can make a difference.
