According to NADFAS House, “THE ARTS SOCIETY Heritage Volunteers help to conserve our heritage both in Britain and in parts of Europe. Conservation and preservation of our heritage are tremendous burdens on the limited resources of museums, National Trust properties, historic houses, libraries and gardens. Volunteers help them in non-specialist but vital ways by caring for collections, recording documents, guiding and stewarding. Heritage Volunteers help to keep them accessible for all." (You may be interested to know that, nationally, volunteers give over 300,000 hours per year working on heritage projects.)
