To register as a volunteer click here – The website shows the activities, times and numbers of people we need.  Once you’ve signed up we will contact you via text in the lead up to the event to keep you informed of where to come and any extra information you may need.  We are especially looking for creative people who can help with face painting for an hour or so.

This is an excellent opportunity for secondary students to have fun with their friends and maybe volunteer for an hour.
