At The Gateway we have a vibrant 40 strong group of volunteers, you only have to read our reviews to understand just how friendly and welcoming they are to all who pass through our doors.

We have a group of volunteers who also actively raise funds with a variety of events such as Quiz evenings and Panto through to Craft Fayres.

Most of our volunteers have been with us for many years and have been a steadfast support throughout the growth of our Charity. They happily offer their time providing the best of customer service in a variety of ways.

The in-kind support of our volunteers equates to in excess of £100,000 per year ensuring all of our events are staffed and that our customers and hirers are greeted with the warmest of welcomes, enriching their Gateway experience.

We are extremely proud and grateful to each and every one of them!

What our volunteers receive in return is the experience of feeling part of The Gateway family, the joy of meeting people who are having such a great time at each of our events and also the ability to enjoy Live Music, Cinema, Theatre Streams, just a small sample of our wide and varied programme.
