A new opportunity has been added to Manchester VSB by Walk the Plank, starts 22 June 2014

Opportunity: Volunteer for Manchester Day
On Sunday 22 June, tens of thousands of people will fill the streets of Manchester when one of the North West’s flagship summer events takes place. Manchester Day is created by the people of Manchester, commissioned by Manchester City Council and produced by Walk the Plank, and we’re looking for enthusiastic people to play a key role in helping us bring the streets of this vibrant city to life with an incredible spectacle of music, colour and performance.

Volunteer roles on the day (Sunday 22 June 2014)

There are two ways you can get involved:

Communication support
The key part we need you to play is sharing the Manchester Day programme with the audience – this will involve giving out the free Manchester Day programmes and answering any queries people have about the day. This is a vital part of the event so that everyone knows what’s happening, when and where. You’ll be the public face of Manchester Day so we need people who enjoy interacting with others The atmosphere will be very upbeat, you’ll have a great time helping out and you will receive a briefing prior to the event so you have all the information you need to be able to carry out your role.

Creative Support on the day of the parade
We need people to help set up the parade at its start point in Manchester’s Castlefield. You’ll play a vital part in on-the-day preparation and delivery, helping groups with floats and accessories and directing participants to their positions. You’ll then get chance to be part of the parade itself, acting as an info point for participants, distributing water and sunscreen, or even carrying banners, flags and props.
