ULSTER GRAND PRIX – CAN YOU HELP?
August 14th – 17th 2013
The Meningitis Trust has this year been chosen as the Charity of the Year at the above event. This is fantastic news for the charity but they need our help!
The Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix is the world’s fastest motorbike road race, is 7.4011 miles in length, the atmosphere is electric and a great day out.
Meningitis can strike in an instant and kill within four hours, it does not discriminate, it can affect anyone of any age, sex or race. The charity is dedicated to supporting those affected and raising awareness of this devastating disease so that lives are saved.
To be able to make the most of this opportunity the charity requires 35+ volunteers each day and would love you to join their team. Types of activities you can help with are
- Help with collections around the venue
- Help to man their awareness stand
- Collect signatures for the introduction of the Meningitis B Vaccine
- General event support volunteers
- Mascot volunteers (willing to wear the mascot costume!)
- Children’s entertainers (face painting, magician, balloon modelling etc.)
The times volunteers are required are:
14th August: 13.30 – 21.30 15th August: 10.30 – 20.30
16th August: 13.00 – 21.30 17th August: 8.00 – 20.30
Half or full day shifts are available to suit individuals
Because of the number of volunteers required please do ask your family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and anyone you can think of that may be willing to help.
If you like to volunteer or find out more information please contact Jo Campbell, either call 0845 120 0664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
