Swapping the Classroom for the Castle

22 February 2017

Six students from Durham University have swapped classroom study for conservation at the Castle as a part of a national charity campaign.

The group, all on unrelated courses, spent the day working with Auckland Castle Trust’s Production Garden Manager, Ian Legge and Senior Park Ranger, Alan Anderson as part Student Volunteer Week 2017.

Among their biggest tasks was helping to gravel the area around the Georgian Gothic Deer House, managed by English Heritage, which remains one of Auckland Park’s most popular landmarks.

 

Student Volunteer Week, now in its 16th year, is designed to encourage students across the UK to volunteer in the community they study in and develop new skills. It is co-ordinated at Durham University by Student Community Action (SCA), which runs more than 60 student volunteering projects throughout the year. For more information please click here.
