As a small independent charity the Magpie Centre is dependent upon the volunteers from the local community who come and give their time in many different ways.

Your time would help us to continue making a real difference to the lives of the riders and carriage drivers who use our Centre. We always need volunteers and would love you to get in touch.

When You Can Help

Riding lessons and carriage driving take place at the following times and this is when we are most in need of volunteer help.

If you could spare a few hours each week or maybe just at our events – supplying cakes, making tea, putting up and taking down marquee – we would be happy to welcome you.
