To support the Festival we would also like volunteers to help with either selling Programmes and / or help on the day of the Festival - details below
To ensure widespread awareness of the Festival &
the detail programme for the day, we need to sell a large quantity of programmes
for the Festival.
Proceeds from the Programme sales will contribute to the funds available to Park projects and will also go to local groups such as the Sea Scouts who have volunteered to help sell programmes.
We have a few volunteers / volunteering groups already, but we are desperately seeking additional volunteers who are willing to sell Festival programmes locally eg in their road / neighbouring roads.
The programmes are now available & it is intended they will be sold right upto & including the day of the Festival - so the pace of selling can be relatively leisurely / to suit yourself.
Can anyone willing to help sell programmes, please contact us as soon as possible either by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (Jill or Richard on 773886)
