A new Other opportunity has been added to Manchester VSB by Manchester City Football Club, starts 02 December 2012


The annual MCFC Santa Stroll is taking place on Sunday 2nd December at the Etihad Stadium.

Last years event saw thousands of City fans brave the cold weather to support CITC’s nominated charities. They all wore blue Santa suits and the Etihad campus was full of Christmas cheer.

Due to the amazing success of last year’s event we are expecting more participants to turn out for this great cause and we require the amazing help of volunteers. The day will start at 9am and run until 1:30pm (approx).

The day will require volunteers to help give the participants goody bags at the end of the stroll, assist with the race and general duties during the day. Some refreshments will be made available for volunteers on the day and volunteer T-shirts will be given to the team so they are recognised by the supporters if they need assistance.

*Please note this is a separate volunteer opportunity to the course marshall one already added by MCC Athletics Department.
