Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton needs more helpers to welcome visitors.
Volunteers are needed to welcome visitors to East Devon District Council’s art gallery in Honiton.
The Thelma Hulbert Gallery, in Dowell Street, already benefits from the loyal support of volunteers, but more are needed.
University graduates are among the gallery’s existing volunteers.
They decided to use the volunteering opportunity to increase their employment potential, improve their CVs and keep up their knowledge of the current contemporary arts scene at grass roots level.
Volunteers have their travel and parking costs reimbursed, so they are never out of pocket, and also become immediate, complimentary Friends of The Gallery, entitling them to a 10 per cent discount on purchases from the gallery and shop.
Angela Blackwell, the gallery’s curator, said: “It’s a great deal. All we ask in return is a regular commitment to help staff the gallery between either 10am and 1.30pm or 1.30 and 5pm on Thursdays or Fridays.
“We look forward to working with you!”
