The Marsh Trust Awards
In June 2011, the British Museum and the Marsh Christian Trust presented their third annual awards for volunteers engaging museum audiences.
This exciting award recognises best practice and the innovative ways in which volunteers work in museums and galleries to engage the public with collections.
More than sixty museums and galleries entered this year and awards were presented to individuals and groups of volunteers from across the country.
The overall national winner of the third annual Marsh Volunteers for Museum Learning Award is Rutambhara Joshi for her work at Thinktank Planetarium, Birmingham.
Each regional winner receives £500. The overall winner chosen from the regional winners also receives an additional £2000.
All winners receive a certificate. Prizes are presented at a ceremony at the British Museum.
