Enquiry  Donate

Join the passionate team shaping what is a relatively new but highly ambitious sporting heritage institution and become actively and meaningfully involved in the discovery and conservation of hockey’s rich history.

We always need more volunteers to help us. You don't have to be a historian, a librarian or an archivist - the majority of our current volunteers certainly are not - though if you do have these kind of skills we won't turn you away!

 

What Can You Do For THM?

Are you interested in supporting us in any of the following areas?

  • Receiving, cataloguing and conserving the material coming in
  • Acting as an ambassador in the regions to spread the word
  • Making the wealth of information and history in the Museum available to the hockey family and the wider public
  • Designing promotional material for the Museum
  • Advising on marketing and outreach
  • Developing the website and advising on IT support generally
  • Developing and researching the collection and archives in one of the many specialist areas of the game of hockey (see "Artefacts & Archives" and "Research & Study Topics"); and
  • Planning, designing and staffing exhibitions and events both at hockey tournaments and on-site at the Museum.

 

What Can We Do For You?

It is our volunteers who are responsible for the Museum's rapid progress to date and we really value their dedication and donations of time. As a THM volunteer you will:

  • Be added to the THM Mailing List;
  • Receive and sign the Volunteer Handbook (formalising our commitment to you and yours to us as well as being chock full of useful guidance);
  • Have the opportunity to attend THM events and exhibition openings;
  • Have the option to embrace opportunities for training and improving your skills;
  • Be invited to our annual Volunteers’ Day: discover what your colleagues are working on and have your say on Museum plans; and
  • Have the opportunity for access to international hockey tournaments if, in your capacity as a THM volunteer, you are servicing the Museum's contribution therein.

 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with The Hockey Museum then please get in touch (contact the Curator by This email address is being protected from spambots.

You don’t have to commit to attending every week, it very much depends on how much time you would like to give. You also needn't be based in the Surrey area as we need support and promotion all around the country and, indeed, the world.
