A special thank you!

It was celebration time at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth recently when a number of volunteers marked over five, ten or fifteen years of voluntary service.

At a special lunch to mark the occasion, volunteers were awarded certificates and commemorative pins by the museum director Richard Doughty. The volunteers came from all departments of the museum including galleries, front of house, education, boat restoration and the library.

The Museum has over 170 volunteers who give a total of 30,000 hours every year.

Human Resources Manager Linda Frost said: ‘The museum simply could not function without our dedicated team of volunteers and we are immensely grateful for all that they do. This celebration is just one small way we recognise their important work.’

The Museum is always on the lookout for new volunteers, and with summer approaching, there couldn’t be a better time to consider joining the team. No previous experience is needed and anyone interested should visit nmmc.co.uk/volunteering or contact Linda on 01326 214559 or email lindafrost@nmmc.co.uk.
