Hyde Park Unity Day aims to have something for all.
No matter what skills you have and whatever time you can donate it goes to making Unity Day happen. The best way to get involved is to come to a meeting: dates on Home page.
The next best is to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Amongst other things you could help:
– as a member of the management team, guiding the process of organising a large scale free community event, dealing with funding applications, licensing, security, equipment hire, risk assessment and plenty of other jobs that ensure the event is run safely for everyone’s enjoyment.
– as an Area Coordinator, supporting a core group of volunteers and active members for their area, who bring the show to life with music, food, arts, performances, community stuff, kids’ stuff, sports and everything that makes Unity Day special.
– help raise funds, by applying for grants or putting on events, which have included car boots sales, gypsy and folk music nights, jumble sales, dub sound clashes, sponsored leg waxing, pub quizzes and various band nights.
– help distribute posters, take minutes, help set up on the day, or clear up the day after…….
