Sophie Hearn Volunteer Manager with English Heritage shared this:
English Heritage is committed to ensuring that its sites are, wherever possible, placed at the heart of local communities. Our Affiliate Volunteer Scheme is designed to enable and support local partner organisations who contribute their time to care for our sites. We hope the result will be an increasing number of volunteers and groups who feel part of the English Heritage family.
Being part of the scheme means your vital contribution is valued, and volunteers can benefit from training opportunities, volunteer passes, newsletters and socials. We are very grateful to Land of Oak & Iron for their continued support of Derwentcote Steel Furnace. We are therefore proud to have them as part of our Affiliate Volunteer Scheme.
