In 2019 we’re opening our doors more than ever before. With more opening hours and more opportunities for visitors to enjoy both the Hall and the Museum of Childhood we're making volunteering even more flexible. So, no matter how much time you can offer, you'll be able to contribute to the future of Sudbury.
