"Volunteering at The Hepworth Wakefield has been an excellent experience! I have met lots of new people and it is great creative atmosphere to learn more about working in the art gallery industry and also gain valuable skills and work experience too! I have received positive feedback from visitors who have been to THW to spend a family day out together at the gallery and it is nice to hear that I have played a vital part in assisting there visit and helping them have an enjoyable and fun time together!"
