England’s heritage sector simply couldn’t function without the hard work and dedication of its volunteers. Research found that in 2015 8% of people volunteered their time in the heritage, museum or library sectors equating to roughly 4.2 million people.

Ecclesiastical’s Heritage Heroes Award is the Heritage Alliance’s celebration of the amazing achievements of volunteers.  Now in its eighth year, the award is a wonderful way to raise awareness of the generosity of the sector’s volunteers and to say thank you where they have far exceeded expectations.

Nominate a volunteer today! The winner receives up to £150 toward travel costs and one day’s pro bono support through practical or professional volunteering from Ecclesiastical. For example, digging, decorating, sharing business management, marketing, communications or HR skills. The exact nature of the support to be agreed with the winner.
