The Marsh Trust Awards
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 Blaenavon Community Museum Heritage Group Volunteers were the overall national winner.
The Blaenavon Community Museum celebrates the proud cultural heritage of Blaenavon and the south Wales coalfield. The Heritage Group Volunteers oversaw the successful relocation of the Museum to the Workmen’s Hall, a key component of Blaenavon World Heritage Site in south Wales. In May 2016 the team successfully achieved Full Accreditation status for their revitalised museum.
Applications for next year’s award for work completed during 2016 will open in Spring 2017.
