Volunteer stewards are essential to the running and success of any event. And we are extremely grateful to anyone wanting to help us. All will be working with Care for the Family staff and will never be left alone. Volunteers are not paid, but as you wil be helping the event to run smoothly you will have free reserve seating and you will miss nothing of the event. Volunteers are requested to do their utmost to arrive at the venue in time for a 6.00pm briefing and to be in position for doors open.
Liz Sheridan, a recent volunteer steward, wrote;
“I was really surprised when I found out Care for the Family relied on volunteers to help run their events. I didn’t know there was such a role. So I suggested to a group of friends we should help out as stewards for the Rob Parson’s Getting Your Kids Through Church event in London.
“It was amazing to be part of such a professional, well organised team and we didn’t miss seeing any of the event. We were very well supported by the Care for the Family staff and were given a thorough briefing and shown exactly what to do.
“Our roles ranged from taking tickets at the door to helping on the book stalls. Some of us helped on the partner stands while others showed people to their seats or handed out free bottles of water.
“It was great fun being part of the team and I would definitely volunteer to help again. It was not only a privilege to serve but it was exciting and enjoyable too. Attending for nothing was great, and they were so grateful for my help I was able to choose a free book at the end as a thank you, which was the icing on the cake.”
