Organising Committee needed!
We have a fundraising target of £100,000 in 2017 to rebuild a school in Nepal damaged by the 2015 earthquakes.
As well as many regular small events, we have a huge exciting event planned that is new to Guernsey. We're looking for enthusiastic people looking for a rewarding volunteering commitment to form an organising committee between now and September.
Although not essential, as the more hands on deck the better, the specific skills that we need to get this event off the ground are project management, marketing, communications, previous experience of organising large community events, and contacts in athletics groups, the local music scene, and corporate companies who may be interested in sponsoring a new event for Guernsey.
For more information, and to register interest in the role, please email Natalie at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for volunteers to help us with our regular upcoming events and some exciting new ones.
Whether you can just help us out once for an hour or you would like to volunteer with us more regularly, we'd love to have you join us. Check out our Facebook page to see what we get up to and email us (email@example.com) to find out about the opportunities available.
