Morton Hall is the largest community centre on the eastern side of Macclesfield. We are a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. We are always grateful for new volunteers who can get involved and spread the workload.
We need people to volunteer a little time and offer their skills to keep the hall open and serving our community. Perhaps you have been to a class here, or a social event? Maybe you've come to hear Macclesfield Brass Band or brought your kids to Rhymetime? The hall is well-used and needs your help to keep going.
We need people who have some free time to check on things at the hall when needed, but also someone who can do bookkeeping, has some 'handyman' or basic computer and admin skills.
If you can help then please contact us via e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the Volunteer Application form below.
To learn more about the Hall you can read the article about us in Macclesfield Express (29 May 2013), or read about the memories of the Morton Hall Reunion event organised by iMacc Youth Club on 20 July 2013 with over 200 people in attendance.
