What our volunteers say 

Lynda, volunteer for the 1914-18 project says:
“I volunteered to work as part of the research, digitisation and events team. I’ve learnt a host of new skills and made use of the ones I already had. Volunteering got me out of the rut I was falling into after my parents died, giving me a new interest and a new enthusiasm.”

Mat, research and digitisation volunteer says:
“It's always nice to have a reason to get out of the house and mix with people, and it has taught me a lot of research-based skills you don't learn at school or university. Doing local history is a great way to get to know my hometown better too.”
