Ref: Help required
We are looking for people in our community who would be willing and could spare the time to volunteer from between 1 and 3 hours per week to run Enrichment activities at Samuel Ward during our Enrichment Period, which is 2.50 – 3.40 Tues/Weds and Thursday each week.
Do you think there would be anyone within the town running club who would be prepared to help us. We are looking to run a running club during at least one of the above sessions (although all three afternoons would be great) and are looking for community volunteers who would be able to inspire our young people.
Please do let me know or feel free to pass on my email address to anyone who would be able to help.
Contact Andrew or Stephen if you are interested.
