Name of Event: Summer Wellbeing Festival 2019

Volunteer Role: Do you fancy being part of a busy and vibrant summer festival just off the Holloway Road? We need volunteers to help in all aspects of our Summer Wellbeing Festival on Saturday 29th June, from stewarding, running stalls, serving tea and talking to visitors. It’s a great opportunity if you are interested in event management, getting to know local people, or the voluntary sector. Every volunteer will get a certificate and an invitation to our awards ceremony in the autumn.

We need volunteers to help steward on the day – this could be anything from directing traffic, looking after elderly guests, liaising with musicians, keeping the day running to time, acting as a runner or running a stall. We’d love lots of people of all ages to become involved, volunteer and have some fun.
