Volunteer for Pride?

Manchester Pride, the city’s annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) festival is looking for volunteers for this year’s event, which takes place from Friday 19 August – Monday 29 August 2011.

The charity organisation is seeking volunteers from a wealth of backgrounds to help festival attendees from the UK (and beyond) have a fantastic time in Manchester and enjoy every moment of their stay. Volunteers will learn new skills, meet lots of great people and have fun whilst helping to deliver a world-class event. Opportunities that are available include Big Weekend crew, promotions assistants, parade stewards and parade collectors.

Matt Horwood, a Manchester Pride volunteer, said: “I have been volunteering with Manchester Pride for three months now, and have enjoyed every second of what I do. The office ethic is fantastic, the goals the organisation work towards amicable, and I have had a lot of fun along the way. I cannot wait for Manchester Pride 2011 and helping secure, with my fellow volunteers, that it enjoys the best birthday ever.”
