Hey everyone!
We are looking for multiple volunteers to come and join us from 10th November to restore the sparkle to our hostel! We will be painting our rooms within the building and are looking for volunteers for either the whole or part of the 4 day working holiday.

Volunteers would need to arrive at 10:30am on Friday 10th Nov to help take down bunk beds and clear bedrooms of the furniture. We will need to prep the rooms and may need to do some cleaning first before getting the paint out. The Saturday and Sunday will be spent painting and glossing where needed. On Monday, the bunk beds and furniture would need to go back in.

We are offering free accommodation for the whole weekend and discounted meals at £2 per dish. Free Wi-Fi and bathroom facilities available throughout our hostel.

Wearing old clothes that you don't mind getting covered in paint is highly recommended. All tools will be provided. Hope you can join us!!!

You can claim up to £15 per day towards your travel expenses to a maximum of £60 for four days or more. Accommodation is provided free of charge in shared single gender rooms.

Some information about Canterbury:
A fantastic city hostel, located on the main road into Canterbury, so an excellent base to explore the delights of this historical city. With direct high-speed train services into London and the main entry route into/out of the UK to Europe, this really is a great stop over point.

You’ll find the Roman-walled city of Canterbury crammed with history and culture. The accommodation at YHA Canterbury is close to the centre and popular with groups, individuals and school trips alike. Attractions include the cathedral, abbey, museums, guided tours and theatres - great for a cheap city break or weekend away. The hostel is within easy reach of the North Downs Way and Pilgrims Way.
