Volunteering


Without volunteers, many events simply wouldn’t happen. Doing volunteer work is a fun and easy way to explore interests, meet new people and add a new dimension to your life. It can be a relaxing, fun way to escape from your day to day routines.

Our volunteers tell us they find it immensely rewarding giving up some of their time to help us out. If you want to share in this positive pastime and add to your social life (and CV) contact us - details on the back page. Face painters, marshals, first aiders, leaflet distributors, photographers, envelope stuffers - we need you all!!
