Your Museum Needs You! Scarborough Museums Trust Seeking Volunteers

Scarborough Museums Trust is seeking more volunteers to work with fascinating historical items ranging from taxidermy to world-class art.


The Trust needs people to join its team of volunteers working in the Rotunda Museum, Scarborough Art Gallery, and at Woodend in the Scarborough Collections, the name give to all the museum objects and artwork belonging to the Borough. 

Volunteers need to be aged at least 18. Times are flexible, but volunteers are asked to commit to at least half a day a week; the Trust can accommodate students and parents of school-age children. 

The Trust’s Volunteer Manager, Julie Baxter, says: 

“Our volunteers help with activities and events, invigilate exhibitions and work with the collections.

“They will be helping with important projects, getting the chance to meet new people and make friends, learning valuable new skills, and seeing the day-to-day workings behind the scenes at the museum and gallery. They will also occasionally have the opportunity to go on interesting courses.

“We really value our volunteers and are happy to pay daily travel expenses within the Scarborough area.”

Anyone wishing to join SMT’s volunteer team should call Julie on 01723 384506, or email julie.baxter@smtrust.uk.com before the end of January.
