VOLUNTEER FAIR AT ASHMOLEAN MUSEUM
This event is designed to help bring together Broadway’s charities and local volunteers.
Volunteers are essential to charitable organisations, and the Ashmolean Museum Broadway is no exception. The museum is opening its doors on 18th July to welcome people for free, to enjoy the building but also to learn about local volunteering opportunities including those at the museum itself.
Held at Ashmolean Museum Broadway, this event will include stands from local charities and heritage organisations seeking new volunteers, as well as Ashmolean Museum Broadway itself. There will be staff and volunteers with displays and leaflets from Sue Ryder Charity Shop, the Gordon Russell Design Museum, Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, and Snowshill Manor and Garden. We will also be joined by Pershore Volunteer Centre whose will be able to provide advice and guidance on volunteering and its benefits.
Visitors will be invited to look around the Ashmolean Museum Broadway for FREE and to talk to staff and volunteers from the different local organisations in the beautiful surroundings. There will be information available for potential volunteers, and the opportunity find out about volunteering opportunities and even to sign up with different organisations.
Sarah Ganderton the Operations Assistant who is organizing this event says, “We are looking forward to the event, it will be a great opportunity for potential volunteers to learn about different local organisations and to meet their volunteers and staff. It will also be a great chance for visitors to see the museum, and enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
“Volunteers are essential to many museums and charities around the country, and our volunteers at the Ashmolean Museum Broadway are invaluable. Without their help, and enthusiasm we just wouldn’t be able to open to the public or to offer the friendly welcome and the regular tours that visitors enjoy.”
The Ashmolean Museum Broadway will be open for the event on Monday 18th July from 11am until 2pm. Entry is FREE to all who would like to learn about local volunteering. There will also be FREE tea and cake served in the conference room, and FREE tours of the museum delivered by volunteers and staff.
