Con­tact Marie (see be­low for de­tails)

An ex­tra­or­di­nary num­ber of vol­un­teers (18 years and over) are re­quired to help with some fan­tas­tic sporting events in New Ply­mouth.

The first is the ITU Triathlon World Cup on Sun­day, March 25 with 65 vol­un­teers needed, then Weet­bix Kid­sTRYathlon on Wed­nes­day March 28 with 150 vol­un­teers needed and then on Sun­day April 8 the Mitre 10 Rain­bow Run where 60 vol­un­teers are needed.

The vol­un­teer roles will mostly cen­tre around mar­shalling so it is not hard work and the hours can be ar­ranged to suit the time that you have to share. We would love to have your names early so that Terry of Sport Taranaki can un­der­take brief­ings etc.

If vol­un­teer­ing for ei­ther Red Cross or Sport Taranaki ap­peals to you then please con­tact­ing Marie at the Vol­un­teer­ing New Ply­mouth on (06) 758 8986, text / phone cell 027 541 0577 or email co­or­di­na­tor@vol­un­teer­ingnew­ply­ to take that next step, she is keen to hear from you.
