A devoted, valued team of volunteers is at the heart of our work. Gifts of time, involvement and skills are correspondingly welcome. If you would like to play a part there are many roles available – see our Volunteer page for more.

A gift in memory is an enduring way to honour a loved one. We are embarking on a project to discover the medieval residents of Toad Hall, supported by a bequest in celebration of the life and work of Jane Laughton, author of Life in a Late Medieval City: Chester, 1275-1520. Your commemorative gift could go towards our general work of maintenance and conservation or to support something specific.
