Volunteers needed for York Pride event

The organising committee for York Pride are always working hard to make York Pride bigger and better. This year’s event is taking place on 20 June and they need new volunteers to help on the day and make this year’s Pride day the best yet.

Volunteers are needed for the following roles:

  • Parade Stewards – volunteers are needed throughout the day to ensure everything runs smoothly
  • Parade Sales Team Members -volunteers are needed for just 30 minutes before the parade to sell items and generate much-needed funds. After that they’re free to enjoy the parade and the rest of the day
  • Knavesmire Sales Team Members – volunteers are needed for an hour during the afternoon event at the racecourse to sell items

As an entirely volunteer run charity, the committee relies heavily on the support of the local community to make the parade and the festival a success, so any support would be very welcome. The whole day is sure to have a fantastic atmosphere and be a fun thing to be a part of.
