Become part of Just Walk’s volunteer team for a unique and rewarding experience

Calling any early risers wanting to help support our walkers and enjoy a unique experience the morning of Saturday 12th May 2018 behind the scenes at Goodwood Racecourse: we’re looking for volunteers… the super-duper kind!  

If you are enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and committed, we would love to have you join our volunteer team. Your duties will include meeting and greeting new arrivals, helping with the registration process, signing people in, and possibly a few other small jobs that often present themselves on the day. You’ll play an important role in ensuring our Just Walk 2018 event goes off without a hitch and all our walkers have a stress-free start to their challenge.

As one of our valued team members, you’ll experience the amazing atmosphere at Goodwood Racecourse for yourself. As our walkers gather, you’ll be swept up in the excitement as the anticipation for the start of the event reaches fever pitch. Enjoy hearing previous ‘Just Walkers’ regale one another with past Just Walk stories and watch as old friends catch up and new friendships are formed.

Volunteering is a rewarding experience and a great opportunity to get involved and give something back. If you live local to Goodwood Racecourse, looking for event work experience for your CV or planning on coming down to support friends, family or a work team, why not offer a couple of hours of your time and do your bit as well. Aside from your volunteering duties, there will be plenty of time to wave the walkers off as they set out on their chosen route, and to be there as they cross the finish line offering words of encouragement as well as lots of cheering and clapping. 

If you’re an early bird and love the idea of mucking in, we’d love your help. Your ‘superness’ will be rewarded with a FREE bacon sandwich and a steamy hot cuppa waiting for you upon your arrival.

Interested? If you are ready and willing to volunteer your time and put your super-duperness out there, please contact Kate or Gemma on 01297 300 504 for further information.
