Archivist Updates Volunteering

Clothing Volunteer wanted

The Society are looking for a volunteer to help us with our growing collection of 20th Century clothing and accessories.

Our collection of items made by Hope Brothers Ltd, and from its later Burberrys ownership, is rapidly growing. Therefore, we are seeking a volunteer to help us to identify, treat and clean, catalogue, and carefully store a wide range of garments – including coats, dresses, hats, gloves, and more.

We are able to provide guidance on treatment methods required.

If you are interested in helping us with this casual volunteering position, or would like further information, then please contact us.
