Roger Kelly, Chair of the Cultural Engagement Group at Ushaw College, said: "To do all this, we are looking for volunteers! The concert and events programme will need volunteers for "front of house" to meet and greet visitors, act as tour guides, assist with refreshments, steward the venues, to collect tickets and sell programmes. If you cannot attend Ushaw on a regular basis we are also looking for on-line supporters."
...David Willetts, the minister for Universities and Science, has also enthused about EES and describes it as one of the "eight great technologies, which will propel the UK to future growth"
