Events Volunteers

Could you give four days a year and become an events volunteer?

We hold four major events a year, including an annual Sparkle Walk and a Motorbike Run around Lincolnshire.  We need a pool of people who can commit to giving just four days a year to assist with these events.  It could be marshalling, helping serve refreshments or even dressing up as a ghost for the spooky annual Scare Hike… all support is welcomed.

Where possible, we would also like people to sign up to provide pre-event support. This could be posting leaflets through the doors on your street, putting up posters, sharing social media posts or flyering in a town centre.

You will be given clear instructions and a defined role, and all dates will be pre-planned with timings and locations.

The events will all take place on weekends; two are daytime events and two take place on evenings. Each event should last no longer than five hours.
