This week has been National Volunteers Week and it is a good opportunity to publicly thank our volunteers who have helped the Shuttleworth Trust over last year.
Volunteers are key to the building and maintaining of relationships with visitors and supporting the numerous events run by the Collection, House and the Garden.
We are fortunate to have a volunteer workforce that possesses a high level of skills covering many key areas including the vehicle & aircraft restoration and maintenance, the conservation of artefacts and archives, art & furniture restoration, horticulture, meeting visitors and telling the Shuttleworth story.
In the last year 223 volunteers worked an equivalent of 32,662 hours of unpaid work worth a minimum of £326,000.
This is an extraordinary contribution to the running of the Collection and I thank all of our volunteers for their continued hard work.
