Volunteer Archive Admin Assistant/Open Days Volunteer
”After retiring in 2007 I became a Museum volunteer because it gave me the opportunity to further my interest and particularly the history of Manchester and it’s people, having been born and raised in Ancoats and Miles Platting,” she said.
”I enjoy the social interaction with the visitors and what I perceive to be great public relations. It is what makes being a volunteer both worthwhile and enjoyable.”
Volunteer with Tameside Neighbourhood Policing Team
Janet Gould has been a volunteer with GMP in Tameside with the South Neighbourhood Team for the past 3 years.
“I became a Police Support Volunteer because I care about my community and wanted to help make a difference,” she said. “Being a Police volunteer enables me to be the link between the police and the community, promoting confidence in the police.
“My work is varied, from taking minutes, producing the monthly Divisional Home Watch Newsletter, organising events and meetings, and giving administrative support when needed to the Police Officers and PCSOs. I thoroughly enjoy being a police volunteer, being part of the team, I am proud to be part of GMP.”
