A RECRUITMENT drive has launched to find volunteers to help care for the ceramic poppy sculpture Wave, which will be presented at Royal Armouries Fort Nelson in Hampshire from 13 April to 24 June

The venue is appealing for volunteers for a number of roles, primarily based outdoors, welcoming visitors and making sure visitors have a safe and memorable experience. Whether volunteers can offer a regular half- or full-day each week or only commit a small window of time, Royal Armouries will cater for all availabilities and provide full training and support.

Caroline Oswald, poppies volunteer coordinator, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for members of the public to support the presentation of Wave before it becomes part of the permanent collections at Imperial War Museums.

“We hope to build a team of friendly, outgoing volunteers to deliver excellent visitor experience to those coming to see this powerful sculpture.

“The poppies have captured the public imagination on a national and international scale, and the presentation at Fort Nelson offers volunteers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of this project in a place of special resonance with the First World War.”
