‘Supporting Heritage, Creating Opportunity, Embracing Social Responsibility’

MSHS is a non-for-profit organisation to which our volunteers are central. Apart from our business partners, an apprentice, that we fund to learn and retain heritage skills and a small number who assist in a professional capacity, we are all volunteers. 

While the Project is led by a team of trustees and administrative support, the Project is strictly not-for-profit so every participant irrespective of their role is a volunteer regardless of how they came to be involved. As an organisation, our intention is to offer activity and companionship to people in the local community without cost or charge irrespective of how they became involved with the Project.

There are many ways to be involved with our project including:

  1. Sailing the boats – people at all levels from no previous knowledge up to experienced sailors. 

  2. Maintaining the boats irrespective of skill levels or experience. While we’re always delighted to be supported by skilled craftspeople those having or willing to learn basic skills, or happy to progress general restoration tasks are equally as welcome. 

  3. Attend the hub to make tea and coffee, general tidying or purely for the company of others.

  4. Help with the administration. As the Project grows, the tasks become more diverse and include:

  5. Event fundraising

  6. General fundraising – application to organisations.

  7. Creating fundraising initiatives such as Crowdfunding 

  8. Rota organising

  9. Accounting

  10. Translating

  11. Legal Governance

  12. Event management

  13. Policy writing and reviewing documentation.

  14. Involvement in Safety/Rescue services.

  15. Shore crew on sailing days

  16. Clothing and Equipment management
