SPORTING EQUALS SPORT ZONE
Sporting Equals are a national organisation funded by Sport England that work to increase sport involvement and participation amongst BME communities. We are setting up a fully interactive Sport Zone in partnership with sport governing bodies at the Manchester Mela at Platt Fields park. We want to encourage people to try various sports. Sport such as Mini Tennis, Boxing and Football will be available
Manchester Mega Mela is the largest celebration of South Asian Culture in the North of England. Music, dance, food and traditional arts and crafts bring the sights, sounds and spicy aromas of South Asia to Platt Fields Park. It takes place over two days in the summer with around 60,000 people attending over the weekend
We require passionate, enthusiastic SportZone Volunteers. This will involve setting up the activity area, helping to attract event visitors to the Sport Zone, offering advice and information, collecting details of participants and helping with packing up. This will be a great opportunity for someone who has a passion for sport or wants to try something new. It will also be a good chance to work with national governing bodies of sport such as The FA, LTA and England Boxing.
Volunteers don’t need any specific qualifications but a passion for sport will be great. It’s going to be a great day
