Lifeboat museum in hunt for volunteers

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is looking for extra volunteers to join the team at the Grace Darling Museum in Bamburgh.

As with the RNLI’s lifeboat stations, the museum relies on volunteers to keep it running and the charity is hoping to recruit people who can spare half-a-day a week or offer whatever time and skills they can.

New recruits don’t need to be experts on Grace Darling, they just need to demonstrate enthusiasm and a willingness to learn the ropes.

Many of the museum’s volunteers help front of house, welcoming visitors and assisting in the shop. A number of volunteers lead the museum’s education workshops.

Other activities include giving talks to external groups, helping with conservation cleaning of the collections and assisting with administration tasks.
