In April I had my first volunteering shifts. Both at Hull University, first up was the Science Festival. This is an annual event and to be honest, I’m pretty sure they could have managed just as well without us vollies but it was lovely to have the opportunity to be a part of such a fun event. It was a day crammed full of children’s activities, all science based of course and I’m not sure who had the most fun, the kids or adults!
Next up was a shift of gallery invigilating and visitor welcoming at the BP Portrait Awards exhibition in the Brynmor Jones Library, the same place as the Lines of Thought was held. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to enjoy the amazing portraits on show. When you are there for 3 hours, it’s plenty of time to see them properly rather than rushing round which is what we all usually do if we are honest. A few pictures below of some of my favourites.
