I have been a volunteer and a member for many years. It is with some regret that I will not continue volunteering nor will I renew our joint membership.
I recently visited a property with a non member friend, as it was her birthday I was paying for her admission. We were treated to the full hard sell as were an elderly couple at the next reception position. Following a very firm "No" we were then given the "Gift Aid Price " spiel. No mention of the fact that to gift aid one must be a UK tax payer. Again the couple near us received the same hard sell.
I have also noticed that the loyalty membership price remains a closely guarded secret.
The property where I used to volunteer has a volunteer satisfaction level that in a school would demand special measures. No I haven't been asked to wear a rainbow badge but none the less many volunteers feel alienated by management decisions. The final straw is the question on the volunteers satisfaction survey which asks for sexual orientation. I cannot see that which way I swing or not as the case may be has any bearing on my ability to relate to and inform visitors!
Enough is certainly enough!
