09 January 2017 Organising Committee needed!
Actionaid Guernsey Support Group

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 actionaidguernsey@gmail.com
