Designed to be a real boon for those who work so hard to make a difference, this category is free of charge to enter and is open to all museums, galleries gardens, landscapes and heritage visitor attractions across the UK.

“It was total shock to win,” said Den Baker, a Volunteer at the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum who scooped the Volunteers of the Year Award 2016. “We knew nothing about this Awards system before we were nominated and sitting in the audience on the night and hearing that we had won was just amazing!”

Bobby Ogogo, from Horniman Museum & Gardens who was the winner of the Volunteer of the Year Award 2016 said: “Thank you, thank you so much, it is such a privilege.”
