SWFTA Celebrates Completion of Successful Volunteer Project

Friends and colleagues from the wider cultural and heritage sector joined SWFTA to celebrate the completion of our highly successful BFI funded Volunteer Project: The Preservation Partnership Scheme.

The private event was held at Plymouth Arts Centre and was attended by over 50 guests, including many who had helped shaped the development of the project since it started in May 2013. 

Project Coordinator Emily Moore and Training Officer Natalie Banbury (pictured above) designed the programme of events for the evening which included a film show of some of the footage the project volunteers had worked on throughout their work. As an added treat, SWFTA pop corn was thrown in for good measure!

The project which was designed to develop a new approach to volunteering and has resulted in a greater volunteer support or the archive as well as establishing good connections with other organisations utilising the invaluable contribution of volunteers. 

Huge thanks and congrats to Emily and Nat and all the project volunteers on their achievements.
