Volunteers Week: Jay's Story


We continue volunteers week with a story from the brilliant Jay!


"My name is Jay and I started my volunteering role as a welcome host at the Herbert Art Gallery in September 2015.  I greeted and met members of the public who came to the museum. I also helped them with their enquires and showed them where different exhibitions were. I really liked that role because it gave me a chance to meet a variety of people.

Recently I took the opportunity to change from welcome host to transcribing written notes into an Excel Spreadsheet for Megan and Grace of the Transport Museum.  I am rationalising the technical drawing collection (mostly drawings of Rudge Whitworth motorcycles).  I am really enjoying the role because I am comfortable with putting information into a spreadsheet and I hope I can be a great help to them"
