We need more trustees and volunteers in technical, administrative and sales/marketing roles. We have teams of volunteers for woodwork, electrical and mechanical fitting, more hands will enable us to progress more quickly with the fitting out phase of Medway Queen’s restoration. We need to build up the Visitor Centre team to show people round the ship and to operate souvenir and coffee shops. More help means more time open to the public and more revenue for the restoration. There are administration, fundraising and marketing tasks and help is needed there too. The existing teams are stretched to the limit and extra pairs of hands - or fingers on keyboards - would be welcomed with open arms. If you think you can help us restore this famous old ship please get in touch.
The Medway Queen Preservation Society is managed by a Board of Trustees in accordance with Articles of Association approved by the Charity Commission. We not only need more people to support the board, as mentioned above, but additional board members are also needed. If being a trustee of this well-known heritage charity appeals to you get in touch. Being a Trustee does require a long term commitment to the restoration project and “work” of one sort or another between the monthly board meetings of course. But, as the ship progresses or other targets are met, there is a great deal of satisfaction in thinking “I contributed to that!”
