Royal Seal Of Approval For Helicopter Museum Team

The hard work and continued efforts of the work force at The Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare has been recognised by Buckingham Palace with the group being awarded The Queen's Award For Voluntary Service. This prestigious accolade is the highest award given to volunteer groups in the UK. Winners are chosen by a National Awards Committee and The Cabinet Office who provide Her Majesty The Queen with a short-list of recommended  recipients for her final approval.

The Helicopter Museum, a Registered Charity in its own right, celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year and has a loyal team of Volunteers who restore and conserve the historic aircraft in its collection, help maintain the archives and library, provide tours and educational services to the public, man the on-site shop and café, and organise a varied calender of fund-raising events to provide self-sufficient income for the charity.

“This Royal recognition is a true testament to the loyal service of our volunteers and staff, a number of whom have been with us for over 20 years.” said Chairman of Trustees Elfan Ap Rees “Through hard work and determination they have overcome the numerous obstacles and challenges that all independent charities face and have grown The Helicopter Museum into what it is today,  a professional fully accredited museum that proudly hosts the Worlds largest collection of helicopters and autogyros”

The Helicopter Museum is noted for its friendly atmosphere and the interaction between the volunteers  and visitors to the collection. The Museum was recently named the third most popular attraction in Weston-super-Mare by TripAdvisor, being awarded their 2014 Certificate of Excellence.
The Museum is always on the look out for new volunteers and anyone interested in joining the team should contact the museum direct on 01934 635227 or by email at helimuseum@btconnect.com.
