Volunteer Pop Up Shop & Rotunda – #VolFest17
Pop Up Shop – Murray Place, Stirling
As you may of known we were at 58 Murray Place from Saturday 1st July to Thursday 6th July as part of Stirling’s Festival of Volunteering (aka #volfest17) to mainly promote Bannockburn House and what we hope for it in the future as a national and international visitor attraction with sustainable income being generated through a shop, café, tours, events, visitor accommodation, conferences etc. We had a fantastic few days with our friends at Na Fir Dileas (our Jacobite friends) visiting and having a display in the shop, which went down great with the local kids who came along.
Rotunda – King Street, Stirling
On Saturday 8th July we had the opportunity for our volunteers to be at the Rotunda at the bottom of King Street in Stirling and we had hundreds of people come to speak to the volunteers and make donations. There was a lot of interest in the project and hundreds of leaflets were distributed to spread the word and many people signed up as volunteers as they were keen to become involved.
Over the week there were:
- 144 Trust Members Signed Up
- 195 People Visited the Pop Up Shop
- Hundreds of People Visited at the Rotunda
- Hundreds of Leaflets Distributed
- Donations Raised, over £320!
If you visited, donated, talked with a volunteer or took a leaflet, thank you.
Also a big thank you to all the volunteers who came along to help out and gave their time and energy to promote Bannockburn House.
