The museum needs you!

Donations: We need your help

The museum owes a great debt of gratitude for all the support it has received over the years. The support of our visitors and friends ensures the museum’s sustainability for the future. Financial help will also go towards funding our development scheduled to coincide with commemoration of the First World War. Here’s how you can help:

Call for volunteers

 

We have an ‘Activities Officer’ in post who is responsible for leading and developing a volunteer programme that will build a culture of participation, contribution and development.

This is part of a Heritage Lottery funded project which brings dynamic and rewarding volunteering opportunities to the Fusiliers Museum.

 

Volunteering Opportunities:

  • Research and Collections: volunteers are invited to support the delivery of the museum's research service; they can also support important research for the redevelopment of the museum's displays (new displays are due to open in April 2016). They will develop curatorial and preventative conservation skills in order to maintain and preserve the museum’s heritage.

  • Learning Delivery volunteers will deliver outreach and in-museum learning programmes for formal and informal educational audiences. They will develop presentational, communication and educational heritage skills.

  • Learning Development volunteers will create resources, handling collections and loan boxes that will be available to schools and other groups to borrow. This team will develop management, administration and research skills whilst creating an exciting bank of resources that will help to enhance people’s learning.

  • Gallery Guide volunteers will be the voice of the Museum. They will help interpret the galleries and collections for visitors, working with staff, collections and other volunteers to build their knowledge of the Regiment’s rich and varied history.

In return we will give you:

  • Training and learning opportunities in the Museum/ Heritage Sector

  • Travel expenses

  • Flexible Hours

If you think you might be interested, we would love to talk to you now to hear your thoughts on what we can offer our visitors, and on how you might be interested in getting involved. Contact Samantha Levy on 01665 602152 or email activitiesfusnorthld@aol.co.uk
