Share your memories of the Together Trust
Are you interested in local history? Would you enjoy learning a new skill and helping to preserve people’s stories and experiences?
As part of the Together Trust’s 150th anniversary celebrations, we are looking for volunteers to take part in an Oral Histories Project.
Oral histories are a fantastic way of capturing stories as they are a way of enabling people to share their experiences in their own words, with their own voices. For this anniversary project, the Together Trust is looking to recruit up to 10 volunteers who will help us to capture the stories and experiences of people with lived care experience through the Together Trust. We will also be looking for people from the local community who might have memories of the Trust that they could share; you may remember us as the Boys and Girls Welfare Society or even as Bethesda, as our presence in Cheadle spans over nearly 100 years.
Through generous funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, members of the local community will take part in training through the Oral History Society, learning how to gather authentic oral histories. The volunteers will work closely with our Project Coordinator and Archivist to plan, deliver, and transcribe a series of oral histories across the spring and summer. There will also be opportunities for volunteers to share their own oral histories as mentioned.
