Volunteering Opportunities

The Sligo Volunteer Centre is a one-stop shop if you’d like to give something back to the community. It’s a great way to get to know people and get involved. Here are just some of the many roles on offer:

DOLLYS COTTAGE:

Over the summer, Dolly’s Cottage would hope to open 7 days per wk if they get enough volunteers. Volunteers are needed to open the cottage, meet & greet visitors, offer a warm welcome to visitors amongst other tasks. Ideal if you’re in the Strandhill area.
