This is reminder that the Southampton Sky Ride – a free, family, mass participation cycle ride – takes place on Sunday 25th July.
Southampton Cycling Campaign has the opportunity for a stall to promote the Campaign and the work we do. Volunteers are urgently needed to staff the stall; to hand out leaflets and promote campaign membership and cycling in general. If someone is able to help, they should email clare.blay [AT] southampton.gov.uk
Secondly, the Sky Ride itself is looking for volunteer helpers:
Volunteer at the Southampton Sky Ride – we need you!
As you can imagine the personnel needed on the day of this free mass participation event is huge.
We need assistance with site management, route signage, managing entertainment on the day and of course marshals along the whole of the route.
It doesn’t matter if you have not had any event experience before and you don’t have to be able to ride a bike, you will only be allocated tasks that you know you can do. Volunteers usually work in teams and have fun whilst still giving something back to the community; you will not be on your own and may even meet new friends. We give full briefings to all volunteers and provide hi-vis vests and refreshments. Whether you just have a couple of hours to spare or the whole day, we would welcome your help.
If you would like to volunteer at Southampton Sky Ride please contact Eleanor Wilde on 023 8083 2694 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
