Volunteers needed – 2017 Clyde Challenge Grand Prix

The club will be running the 2017 Clyde Challenge Grand Prix on Sunday 28/05/2017 at the Lagoon Leisure Centre, 11 Christie Street, Paisley PA1 1NB.

We need volunteers from amongst the parents and young adults to help run the competition.

In particular, we need help with stewarding and running the tea stall.

You don’t need to volunteer for the whole day (but great if you can!) – even a couple of hours will help. We will always schedule so you can be free for when your child is on the mat.

If you can help, could you give your name to Iain Wilson (or one of the coaches if you can’t find Iain) along with a note of the times you will be available (we’ll factor competition times on the day).

Every little bit helps so please volunteer even if you can only do an hour or so.

Edit: A earlier version of this post had the date of the competition as Sunday 27/05/2017 – The Sunday is, of course, on the 28th!
