Each year the British Museum and the Marsh Christian Trust recognises the contribution of volunteers from around the UK through the 'Volunteers for Museum Learning Award'.

The award celebrates the achievements and contribution of volunteers all over the United Kingdom, recognising their dedication, innovation and excellence in engaging with the public.

This year we are delighted to announce that the Never Going Underground Volunteers’ Team at the People’s History Museum in Manchester, and the Scruton Station Heritage Education Volunteers at Wensleydale Railway Association Trust were the overall joint national winners. The overall winners shared £2000 between them in addition to the £500 that they, and each of the regional winners, were awarded. All winners received certificates which were presented at a ceremony at the British Museum.

Applications for next year’s award for volunteering undertaken during 2017 will open in Spring 2018.
