For the first time MCC engaged volunteers to help visitors around the Ground during the second Investec Test match at Lord's for the 2013 Ashes series.
I've just had such a brilliant experience
A group of Westminster Ambassadors, who worked alongside MCC staff and stewards, were on hand every day of the Test to help spectators with any queries, large or small.
The volunteering initiative was part of The Ashes Legacy Partnership which is a new collaboration between MCC, Nottinghamshire and Durham aimed at bringing the benefits of hosting Investec Ashes Test Matches to local communities in London, Nottingham and Chester-le-Street respectively.
Amongst many things, they helped assist with keeping queues flowing, pointing people to the correct gates and giving out match day handouts.
Volunteering at Lord's
MCC plans to provide more volunteering opportunities for both local people and staff in the coming months.
