Volunteer at Geevor

Become a part of our community

Geevor relies on the support of our fantastic team of volunteers. If you have time to give to the community and share your enthusiasm for the wonderful work at Geevor please get in touch with us.

As a volunteer, you would be joining a friendly and dynamic team engaged in a wide range of different projects to help preserve record and interpret the many different collections and stories held here at Geevor.

Training and support is given to all our volunteers, protective clothing is provided for the relevant projects and we reimburse all travel costs. We also provide free tea and coffee!

VOLUNTEER PROJECTS

Engineering and machinery restoration projects

Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team have restored to working order rock drills and muckers that work under compressed air and were used underground for mining the rock. Battery-powered locomotives that were once used to pull wagons of ore underground have now been brought back into use. February 2024: In the Mill the ball mill that was used for grinding the ore and last worked in 1990 has now been brought back into working order. We are now working on the steam winder and other projects!

Object cataloguing and archiving

Geevor has a collection of many thousands of objects in need of cataloguing and conservation, and we would love to hear from you if you could help with this.

Events Helpers

Our events programme for families and children during the holidays is expanding and we would love to have volunteers wishing to get involved in helping to run events such as hand drilling, arts and crafts or even storytelling to our younger visitors.

The Oral History Project

Since 2002, Geevor has been compiling an oral record of miners, surface workers and other member of the local community. Our volunteers record these fascinating memories, stories and anecdotes.
