No, not to join a tasting panel ...!
Summerfest Beer Festival organisers need your help.
The success of the event relies on the support of the large group of volunteers who kindly commit some of their time and effort (before, during and immediately after the day) to making it all happen. So, with Summerfest 2016 looming, the organising committee is asking for your support.
The event this year falls on Saturday 2nd July, and the plan for volunteer input will be very familiar to those who have kindly assisted before.
Clearly, there is a need for volunteers on the day of the Festival to sell the beers, lagers, Pimms and wine. However, organisers also need people to staff the entrance, the Information/Site Coordination Tent (a new addition this year) and other site management tasks.
In addition, the site does not build itself, or magically clear up afterwards (!) and so volunteers are needed for this too, please. These inputs will be carefully scheduled on Thurs 30th June/Friday 1st July and Sunday 3rd July.
Volunteer Coordinator Peter Harris will try to meet all wishes and match your skills and preferences to the tasks.
The current volunteer list is currently insufficient to fully staff the event, so organisers would really value those reading this news item to help spread the word to friends, relatives and work colleagues. It's good fun and the sense of having contributed to this major fundraising event is very rewarding. The Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust has raised many thousands of pounds for local good causes, and much of this is due to the generous input of volunteers.
If you represent an organisation that has benefitted from a grant from the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust, then perhaps you might consider this as an opportunity to repay in kind.
For further information and to volunteer your generous assistance, please get in touch with Peter Harris by any of the following routes:
