WE’VE JUST FINISHED our Kids’ Medieval Fun Day, and our volunteers are dragging off their medieval costumes, and cleaning up Abbeystowe.
Everyone is exhausted, but all our volunteers are smiling, feeling really pleased that we have helped build a very special experience for so many children.
The feeling of satisfaction you get from volunteering keeps many of us coming back and spending hour after hour, day after day, helping our community organisations.
Here at the Abbey Museum and Abbey Medieval Festival, we are blessed with over two hundred volunteers.
We want to make sure our volunteers are looked after, and have all the information and encouragement they need to keep on doing their wonderful job.
That’s why we’ve run our Volunteer Induction days. It is one of the best ways to invest in our volunteers.
To have a look at what we did at the last Volunteer Induction Day, have a look at the video footage taken on the day. See the video here for Volunteer Induction Day.
If you are one of many new (and highly valued) volunteers, we hope you were able to make it.
If so, can you sport yourself in the video. If not, have a look at it. We hope you can make the next one.
In the meantime, we are now getting everything ready for the Abbey Medieval Tournament weekend.
Please leave a comment so we can be sure you have viewed the video.
