As volunteers from Volunteer Now arrived in Portrush this morning, the National Trust presented passes for the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Experience as a thank you for their volunteer efforts.
Ciara McClements, Visitor Experience Manager at the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede said: “As an organisation, the National Trust wanted to recognise the importance of volunteers in making events like this so successful. I am delighted to present vouchers for the Visitor Experience at the Giant’s Causeway to Volunteer Now this morning as a gift for all their volunteers. We value our volunteers so very much and this is just a small way of thanking volunteers at The Open for the important role they will be playing this week. As with all visitors to the Giant’ Causeway at this time of year, we have been encouraging the volunteers to make the most of their visit and to come early or later in the day and to avoid peak times of 11am to 3pm.”
