Hi Serve the CityI hope all is well with you. It is that time of year again and I am in the process of filling all our volunteer slots for the Paddle for Cancer dragonboat festival. I thought it would be useful to touch base with you at this stage to see if you would be able to help us find volunteers again, as you so kindly did last year.We have a few positions that I currently know are free which are:Litter/Recycling team – Sunday all day from 8am (must be able to stay until the very end, around 7pm)Toilets – Sunday – Continual monitoring of toilets, emptying of each toilet rubbish bin, wipe-up around toilet-bowl area. Spray freshener on each cleanup. If a toilet becomes particularly nasty, lock-up and leave it! At end of Sunday no big cleanup necessary, as toilets can be left as they are.Festival Set-up – 12.00-15.00 on the Saturday. Involves moving tables, benches, fridges, boats and general set-up dutiesFestival Clear-up – 16.00-19.00 on the Sunday. Involves the reverse of set-up.Photographers – 8/9am – 5pm. To be part of this team to capture the races, ambience, volunteers at work, mini regatta, winners and festival in general.Mini-Regatta – we always have general positions to help with the children’s races
Boat-loading – helping on the main race event to ensure participants are instructed and safe getting in the dragon boats
We always get ad hoc positions elsewhere also so anyone who is flexible, hardworking and just wants to help out at a great event, we would love to hear from.
I look forward to hearing from you as to whether you feel you may be able to find some volunteers for any of these positions.
Many many thanks for all the Support for Collecting for the needy of Geneva..
We have several slots still open for the Friday Partage. Do bring you family and friends.
