Battersea Park, London


Volunteer taster sessions are a great way of discovering more about the work of Thrive and what it's like to volunteer - a sort of try before you buy!


Learn about the work we do in London and the different volunteer opportunities. After a tour of the gardens you will meet other volunteers where you can learn first-hand about volunteering at Thrive.

Sunday volunteers

Once a month (usually the first Sunday) we have a group of volunteers who work in The Old English Garden in Battersea Park, helping Thrive to maintain our gardens. 

Meet at 10am in The Herb Garden or otherwise come and find us in the Old English Garden where the work will take place. There is no need to commit in advance just turn up for a day of garden maintenance work and bring your family and friends along too.
