Volunteers Wanted for SOGB Indoor Athletics
SO Greater London Regional Indoor Athletics Competition
Sunday 21st October
Lee Valley Athletics Centre
This is a great event that Lions have supported in the past. Roles will include medal presentation team; welcome and registration; and on-track volunteers.
We initially need 10 Lions for the event, but I am hoping that we will be able to increase this number.
It is a fun, but long day. But you will leave the event with a big smile and amazing memories.
I have attached additional details for those interested.
If you are interested please let me know (simon@dancingbear.me.uk).
Once I have confirmed numbers I will contact you to confirm your place.
Thanks
