New Duke of Edinburgh volunteers

By November 17th, 2019 No Comments

We were very happy to welcome some new young volunteers to the Museum yesterday.  Andy and Jake have both been volunteering with us for a few months now (Jake first volunteered with us when our Access and Learning Officer, Steven Bogle, organised our Social Media takeover day) but they have both decided they would like to volunteer with us more to achieve their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.  They have been volunteering in the office with Judith, the Museum Manager, where they have been helping her to sort our paper objects into the correct acid free storage as part of a major re-organisation of the Museum’s object store.

Alana and Finn volunteered with us for the first time on Saturday.  Arna, our Office Manager, showed them the ropes in Front of House and she was impressed with how quickly they took to it and grasped how to operate the till and deal with customers.

We have another young Duke of Edinburgh volunteer starting with us today and we would always welcome the participation of more young people at The Devil’s Porridge Museum.  To inquire, email steven@devilsporridge.org.uk or phone 01461 700021.
