Making It Happen: Volunteering Plus One
This week is National Volunteers' Week, and along with voluntary organisations and charities all over the country we're taking this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our fantastic volunteers. Greenbelt has over 1,600 volunteers during the festival weekend and throughout the year. We’ll be featuring a few of them here this week - finding out who they are, what they do and what makes them volunteer. There'll be new blog posts on Volunteering at Greenbelt every day from June 1st to 7th. For all Volunteers' Week posts, click here.
Today is the final day of Volunteers' week, so a big thankyou to all of our profiled volunteers.
Whether you're volunteering to use skills you gained in your day job (Pippa Wragg), or volunteering to do something completely different (Ruth Amos), Greenbelt volunteers come away having had a great time, and have sometimes been inspired to do something different with their careers (James Holland, Jez Clark). Volunteering can be literally life-changing!
We hope you found out something of the experience and benefits of volunteering at Greenbelt. We'd love to welcome some new volunteers into our huge range of teams, so if anything has grabbed your interest, or if you have any questions, do get in touch.
We have around 1,600 volunteers on-site, but there are Greenbelt volunteers in the office throughout the year, so if you want to get involved in a more perennial way, see our Office Volunteers page for current opportunities.
A great way to get involved in volunteering is to volunteer with a friend, so if you are an existing volunteer, do consider inviting one (or more!) of your friends to take a look at the list of teams to see if there's anything they could do to make Greenbelt even better and brighter.
And when you see someone volunteering at Greenbelt, be sure to give them a smile, as they're truly the ones who make Greenbelt happen...
