Our volunteers are much-valued members of the PK Porthcurno team and play an important role in supporting our visitors’ experience of the museum and its collections. 

We have various volunteer opportunities, including supporting our public services, digitising our archive collections, looking after our environment through Planet PK, and keeping our historic equipment in good working order.
