BCA celebrates Volunteering Week
As part of Volunteers' Week (June 1-7), Black Cultural Archives (BCA) will be celebrating the amazing team of volunteers that help us make BCA what it is.
Throughout the week, we'll be highlighting a few of the dedicated people who support us in delivering our mission. It's one of the ways we do our best to say thank you.
"The Black Cultural Archives was born out of the efforts of a group of volunteers and is still powered by those who voluntarily support our mission," says Volunteering Manager, Karis Morris-Brown
"With volunteers giving over 100 hours each week, it is important to us that we acknowledge all that they give to us. Our volunteers support us across the organisation: from our Trustees to Front of House and exhibition support" continues Karis
"BCA is a vibrant space with a small staff team. This means our volunteers get to be a part of all areas of the organisation from meeting royalty to supporting those affected by the Windrush scandal."
Charities across the UK will also be holding events to thank their volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteering. Last year there were over 600 events across the country, from award ceremonies to tea parties and barbecues.
You too can join our team of volunteers by filling in our volunteering application form. Make sure you keep an eye on our website and our social networks throughout the week to meet the people behind BCA.
