The Danny is powered by two things - Steam and Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in joining us here on The Danny – the manning and operation of our historic steamship is totally dependent on our volunteer crew, without whom there would be no Danny.
Every role on the ship is undertaken by a volunteer crew - Bridge, deck, engine/boiler room, stewarding and the galley/bars. An outline of each role can be found by selecting the link below. You will be able to participate for as few or as many sessions as you wish, although it is hoped that most volunteers will wish to participate on a regular basis. Access to email is a minimum requirement for all our volunteers as this is how we communicate with each other. We also use an online rostering programme called Timecounts where our volunteers register their availability for dates and events.
When you choose to become part of the Danny team, you will be invited to an Induction Day onboard where you will meet our crew as we go through the roles and basic safety information. If you decide the Danny is for you, you can then sign up for your first volunteering day.
We really do hope you will join us, if you would like any more information or to register your interest in joining us please email us on: [email protected] with brief details and the role you are interested in and our volunteer coordinator will get back to you.
