Our volunteers are critical to the successful running and operation of The Ballance House, a unique link between Ulster and New Zealand.

From guiding individuals, families and groups around the Exhibition to providing refreshments in the Tea Barn, helping in numerous ways at our events, and maintaining the house, garden and orchard, our volunteers do it all.   

If you have a little spare time on Sunday afternoons, bank holidays and at our events during the year, and would like to join our small friendly team, we would love to hear from you!

We are very pleased to be partnering with Volunteer Now along with its Millennium Volunteer team.

Our Patrons

Currently The Ballance House has two patrons, Brian McKnight and Willie John McBride.  We would like to acknowledge and thank all our patrons for their support.  Without the help and encouragement they provide, The Ballance House would not be in such good repair.
