VolunteersEveryone including patrons, friends, sponsors and freelance workers
Everyone who does anything for QueenSpark Books is - to a greater or lesser degree - a volunteer following in the footsteps of QueenSpark writers by practicising their skills on the job.
Management Committee members give their time and expertise for free; paid freelance workers offer exceptional value for money whilst suppliers are encouraged to discount their rates. Other volunteers are recruited to work on specific projects and are given training and support to carry out specific tasks.
For example, throughout the summer 2010, QueenSpark volunteers interviewed the fascinating clientele attracted to the Pavilion Gardens Café. Over subsequent months yet more volunteers wrote up these interviews and some of them are featured in 'Teatime Tales', alongside memories and photographs from the Sewell Family who have owned and run The Café since its first incarnation on Brighton beach in the 1930s.
Depending on the projects we are engaged in at any given time, QueenSpark offers volunteer and training opportunities in many areas of our work. We are also committed to sharing the processes that inform what we do.
