What does the opportunity involve doing?

We are looking for Event Volunteers to help out at our flagship fundraising event Bike It Brighton. Taking place on Sunday 7th June at Preston Park Velodrome, this cycling event offers participants the choice of a 30 or 60 mile ride across the South Downs or a family-friendly cycle around the velodrome. We need volunteers to help with tasks such as registering participants, marshalling the cycle track, and helping out with fundraising activities such as selling raffle tickets.

What induction, training and support is offered?

There is no formal induction or training needed for this volunteer role. Volunteers will be provided with detailed information via email prior to the event and there will be a short briefing on the day. There will be staff members present to support volunteers throughout the day.

What skills or qualities are needed?

No experience is necessary for this role, a cheerful attitude and enthusiasm are all that you need!
