Behind the Scenes : Volunteers' Outing
Posted on by Melanie Charlton
The National Coal Mining Museum celebrates the history of coal mining and its communities. To accomplish its aim of 'Keeping Coal Mining Alive' the Museum is supported by enthusiatic and committed staff and a team of dedicated volunteers who donate their time, skills and enthusiasm.
Our team of volunteers recently visited Ripon Museums Trust to spend the day finding out more about how volunteering helps them provide a great visitor experience.
They visited the 3 Museums - the Workhouse, the Prison & Police Museum and the Courthouse Museum and talked to the volunteers.
"It was a very enjoyable and sociable trip and we learnt a lot more about volunteering. It was a good opportunity for our volunteers to get together. Ripon was a lovely place to visit and we will bring back some ideas to the National Coal Mining Museum" says SallyAnn the volunteer coordinator.
If you have some time to spare, are dedicated to keeping history alive in your local area and enjoy speaking to the public or want to find out more about what other opportunities there are currently at the Museum please follow this link or phone and speak to our friendly team
