Meet Kelly

Kelly Barton, Volunteer Co-ordinator

Kelly is responsible for recruiting and managing volunteers for the Steps to Work programme and across all areas of Strawberry Field. Kelly’s background is in journalism and PR, but more recently she moved into the charitable sector undertaking volunteer management. Outside of work Kelly enjoys spending time with her son and is a keen runner and tandem cyclist. She is a huge advocate of volunteering and is a volunteer counsellor as well as a national ambassador for Parkrun UK. She enjoys playing the piano and saxophone and has a passion for writing. 

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
