I wanted to give you a real insight into how volunteers feel about their experience, in particular with the Culture Track volunteer project that I have been coordinating for the last 2 years.
John kindly has agreed to be interviewed on camera about his experience with Culture Track. This was to be shown at the Volunteering England Regional Conference on ‘Modernising Volunteering in the Bigger Society’ in January 2011, where I gave a keynote speech about our work.
John has volunteered with us for over a year and a half now and has been fantastic, getting involved in volunteering across all of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums venues and in particular the Stephenson Railway Museum. His enthusiasm is infectious and he’s always keen to take on a new challenge. I’m sure he won’t mind me mentioning that he won the award for his Contribution to Customer Care at the North East Regional Museum Hub too! But that’s enough from me; I will let John tell you all about it…
