Arundel Museum is hunting for volunteers to help keep the bank balance healthy

THE hunt is on for someone who will be able to boost the coffers of Arundel Museum and help the facility to thrive.

The site, in Mill Road, was originally founded in the town in 1964, and is run totally by volunteers who are part of the Arundel Museum Society.

Now the group is looking to bolster its ranks with a new volunteer who would be able to lend a hand with fundraising ploys to keep the museum’s bank balances up.

The volunteer would be needed to assist with all aspects of the museum’s fundraising drives and social events – which, more often than not, run hand-in-hand.
