Volunteer at Geevor

Become a part of our community

Geevor relies on the support of our team of volunteers. If you’d like to give something back 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

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.

Engineering and machinery restoration projects

Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team have restored to working order rock drills and muckers that work under compressed air. They are now working on a project to get locomotives operating again.

Event Supervisors

Our event programme is constantly expanding and we are on the lookout for volunteers wishing to get involved in supervising events such as hand drilling,, art projects or even storytelling to our younger visitors.

Object cataloguing and archiving

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