Tea Room Volunteers

  • VO66636


Do you like to be kept busy? A Tea Room Volunteer Role may be for you.

The Gordon Highlanders Museum is committed to preserving and sharing the legacy of the world famous Gordon Highlanders Regiment for future generations. A Gordon Highlanders Museum Guide brings to life the extraordinary 200 year story of ‘The Finest Regiment in the World’. (Sir Winston Churchill 1900).

A Tea Room Volunteer creates a warm welcome to visitors and regular customers. This can be a busy and varied role as you will make hot drinks, take orders, meet and greet, use the coffee machine, operate the till, use the dishwasher and prepare orders.

A fantastic opportunity to help at an award winning Museum. All help is greatly appreciated.
