Volunteering is a great way to make New Friends While Having Fun!
Whether you are an experienced volunteer or a first timer, there’s just nothing like being part of Volunteer Team.
“With over 40,000 visitors attending The Irish Maritime Festival over the weekend, we need a big crew of volunteers to share 4-6hours of their time over the weekend. We are looking for volunteers who love working as part of a team and want to help us to create a great atmosphere. We need a crew of people who will help us to convey the fun, friendly atmosphere of the Festival. We need help with all kinds of practical jobs such as taking tickets at the gate, giving out brochures, helping people on and off the Viking Ships, helping families in the kids activity areas, supporting the activities in the food, fashion and beauty marquee, welcoming competitors from the Boyne Swim and other competitions, surveying visitors to find out more about our Festival audience and so much more” explains Volunteer Co-ordinator Karen Devine.
Louth Volunteer Centre believe that Irish Maritime Festival is a great opportunity to get involved in volunteering. Manager Gráinne Berrill explains “A great crew, big crowds, lots of activities and a great sense of achievement make it a brilliant volunteering experience. We help the Festival Organisers to match each volunteer with a role that best suits their interests and skills. With lots of interesting jobs to do over the weekend it’s a great opportunity for people to get involved. Drogheda Port is an industrial location and large site, so volunteers need to be in good health as it is busy and tasks can be physical. Volunteers will work in a team with strong guidance from the Project Team who will support volunteers throughout.”
If you would like to get involved, talk to Karen Devine on 087 8131901 or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively drop in to meet Gráinne and the team and at the Louth Volunteer Centre in the Old Motor Tax Office on Bolton Street who will be happy to assist you. You can also register and apply for Maritime Festival volunteering opportunities on www.volunteerlouth.ie.
We’d just love to have you on our team … all aboard for the Irish Maritime Festival.
