Thanks to all our volunteers who contribute so much to the museum in so many ways.

Happy #InternationalVolunteerDay ! This is the day designated by the UN as an international observance day for celebrating the power and potential of volunteerism. This year, the day celebrates volunteer efforts that strengthen local ownership and the resilience of the community in the face of natural disasters, economic stresses and political shocks. Check out what NCVO's Shaun Delaney has to say about volunteering building #resilientcommunities in the UK:

Today, Tuesday 27 November is Giving Tuesday, the annual day when people around the world do something good for charity amidst the Christmas shopping rush. In just 4 years the day has grown to be the biggest day of charitable giving in the UK.

The museum is taking part and will be asking our audiences to support our SEND Learning programme through a Just Giving campaign. The campaign will continue throughout the festive period so please spread the word and share it on your social media channels! And don't forget to share the museum's posts, or talk about your bit for charity on Tuesday 27th with the hashtag #GivingTuesday – it's the day for charities to shine!

Here is a short video about Giving Tuesday around the world.

Extraordinary history
Vanessa Theed, our lovely Volunteer HR Manager, is leaving the museum on 19th July. As many of you have seen during interviews, training and at volunteer celebrations, Vanessa is truly committed to promoting the benefits of volunteering. She has been really supportive to me and many, many others, and her absence will be greatly felt. Vanessa, I will forever cherish what you have done for me, not only as a volunteer, but as an individual. Warmest congratulations on your new adventure beautiful!
Happy Easter Volunteers!
How refreshing to find a workplace clearly demonstrating inclusion and embracing the diversity of London, within its staff. There is a wonderful mix of genders, nationalities and ages amongst the volunteers and permanent staff. As a volunteer you are accepted as part of the family. Regardless of your role or position, everybody at the Museum of London work, and play, as a united front. With my dodgy back, I haven't been very active of late. But I find myself skipping with joy to work. It is with great honour and privilege that I volunteer at this wonderful institution!
