On being a Visitor Experience volunteer
Posted on by Melanie Charlton
People are motivated to volunteer for a variety of reasons. Sandra saw volunteering as a means of establishing herself in a new area.
When I moved to Yorkshire from the Midlands I knew no-one except my daughter and her family. I realised I needed to find something to do and to provide myself with the opportunity to get to know the area and its people. Fortunately I answered a call for volunteers at NCM and so began a fantastic experience.
I do story time for the under 5’s and I am a visitor experience volunteer. This involves welcoming visitors to our site and helping them to enjoy themselves.
It’s a joy to be here with such friendly staff and interesting visitors (I’ve already met a well-known TV actor!) I’m learning so much about mining and its history through all the events and exhibitions.
I love every minute.
