If you have previously volunteered then the system remembers your details and auto-fills the sections for you. If you haven’t done it before why not give it a go? We have lots of roles we need to fill from children’s groups, craft, catering to registration. Last year we were unable to run a five-day event due to the lack of volunteers so please prayerfully consider how you could help.
