    Join us and help!

    We (Lesley & Jason) organise a local event in September each year and for Sept 2021we will need 10 workawayers to help with the running of the event. Please SEE MORE DETAILS BELOW.

    We are a not for profit organization and all our helpers are volunteers. All money made is donated to local and national charitable organizations nominated by our volunteers.

    Swanage is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Purbeck, Dorset. We are only 400 m from the beach and town center and withing easy reach of the fabulous walks that surround Swanage. There are numerous pubs and cafés within a few minutes walk which are perfect for an evening drink or perhaps a meal.

    The natural beauty of the area has been recognized and is a World Heritage site, known as the Jurassic coast. Most things are within walking distance including the blue flag beach, Durlston Country park, walks etc. Corfe Castle and Studland are a short bus ride away, as are Poole and Bournemouth. We have a dog and are happy for you to take him with you on walks if you'd like.

    SEPTEMBER 2021 - We are seeking help from the 15th-22nd Sept 2021 to help with a The Purbeck Running Festival

    We have an opportunity for 10 workawayers to assist with the setting up and organisation of a local outdoor event, involving Running and Nordic Walking, For half the time you will have very little to do but from the 10-13th you will have loads to do and may work some long hours. If you can be flexible like this then let us know.

    During the event week, you will be helping with the event and not be cleaning or doing maintenance work. You may have to take your turn in helping with cooking for the team and in keeping the room you are in and bathroom clean.

    You will be doing everything from helping to put up marquees, helping with setting up event start and finish areas, making teas and drinks for the event team, doing admin for events, handing out medals and goody bags and a whole load of other things :) as I have said it is long hours but fun and enjoyable.

    If you join us for this event in 2021 you will be accommodated in our in a bungalow, but you will be sharing the rooms on a same sex basis.

    Please contact us for more details if interested

    Getting to Swanage can be a pain on local transport but we can help with that. Once here, most things are within walking distance including the blue flag beach, Durlston Country park, walks etc. Corfe Castle and Studland are a short bus ride away, as are Poole and Bournemouth. We have a dog and are happy for you to take him with you on walks if you'd like. Our B&B is comfortable, homely and very relaxed. A great place from which to explore the local area.
