VolunteersVoluntary Roles:

Here at Sharpe’s we are always looking for new volunteers to join our team. Volunteers have always been at the heart of Sharpe’s giving valuable time and raising essential funds to keep the museum running.

Our volunteer’s meet up several times a year to offer their input on upcoming events and to discuss fundraising activities. Newcomers are always welcome so if you think that you might be interested in volunteering with us, then either pop into the museum in person or contact us on 01283 222600 to see what it’s all about.


Currently we are seeking volunteers to help in the following areas;

  • Front of House and Reception
  • Museum and Collections
  • Events and Hospitality
  • Children’s Activities and School Visits
  • Building Maintenance


We have flexible opportunities to suit busy people or those with a few more hours to spare, so if you have skills or an interest in any of the above areas then we would love to hear from you!
