It's National Student Volunteering Week and today's #humanofyork is one of our amazing student volunteers: "I heard about the opportunity to volunteer with the Jorvik Centre through my College. Due to the floods in 2015, Jorvik has been re-imagined, and they wanted volunteers for the grand re-opening on 8th April 2017.
I’m excited because the Jorvik Viking Festival is back in York - we’re setting up a mini marquee with sample collections to show to the public. This work is helping keep the name of Jorvik alive, allowing us to continue presenting artefacts for public education and enjoyment. ” – Taghreed, English Literature, Alcuin #uniofyork #jorvik #jorvikvikingfestival #volunteering
