Accounting for Volunteering

The Museum of Dartmoor Life has received a much-needed makeover thanks to staff from the Okehampton office of Simpkins Edwards, who took a day off from number crunching to help the local charity.Inside the museum, a team of six painted the John Young gallery in readiness for the museum’s next exhibition; ‘Floral Wonder’ from the talented children of Okehampton Primary School. Externally, a further team of five weeded the Museum’s courtyard. As a charity, the museum relies on volunteers who work throughout the year welcoming visitors to the museum and the visitor information point.

The museum makeover is just one of the many volunteering days that Simpkins Edwards is participating in over 2019. From litter picks and tree planting, to pulling up Himalayan Balsam and clearing the irrigation system with Tale Valley trust, staff from Simpkins Edwards will be out and about across the county, making a positive difference to local communities.
