Bradford Dragonboat Festival Volunteers needed

We are looking to recruit in the region of 100 adult and young people to act as volunteers for the event so we are very grateful for any time you can commit to the event.

Without the help of volunteers it would not be possible for us to run this event and raise as much money as we can for the Lord Mayors chosen charities, and a whole host of other local charities.

The Festival is being run from Roberts Park in Baildon. Within the site there will be Event Management Pod and a volunteer station. All volunteers would be required to complete the expression of interest form and we will then work with you to identify tasks and roles you would be prepared to undertake on the day.

To give you an indication it is expected that there will be volunteer team leaders heading up small teams of volunteers covering the following areas:

  • A car park team – to be the interface between the Festival and the Wardens / Neighbourhood Policing Team. Supporting the accessibility for disabled visitors to the event 
  • A waterside team (self explanatory)
  • A customer services team (to help with general enquiries / directions, lost children/first aid support etc)
  • A competitor team (to look after the participants, ensuring the teams are gathered in a timely manner etc)
  • A facilities team (stocking loo rolls, emptying bins, litter picking etc)
  • An artists / musician support team (to help artists get set up, moving items to stage / back to transport etc)
  • A participants village team, ensuring only the participants gain access
  • A general angels team This is the volunteers who will turn their hand to anything, who will step up to help any of the other teams if tasks get too big

Whilst you are acting as a volunteer your main role will be to act in a customer service role and help the many visitors to the site by answering queries and directing them to the various facilities on the site. On the day we will issue you with a site map detailing the various facilities on the site to support you with this role.
