Are you practical, hate meetings and like cardboard?
If this got your attention then here is something that might be right up your street. Games & Collectables is a group of people responsible for supporting CAMRA beer festivals throughout the UK. We are looking for volunteers to help us put together Tombola and Pub Games prizes for helping beer festivals raise funds and give fun to thousands of their visitors. This year, we will have raised over £1 million pounds for CAMRA.
We get together monthly at CAMRA's warehouse, which is about 10 minutes walk from the station but has plenty of parking if you prefer to drive. This is where the practical work is done, joining us anytime from late morning to lunchtime but on the activity days we all get together for an essential, and well earned, beer break at a pub.
We are a mixed sociable bunch of ages and backgrounds, with people coming along as and when they are able and enjoying doing something of use to CAMRA and having fun while doing it. The ability to lift cardboard boxes full of books, bar towels etc is useful but the equally so is the ability to put items in the box along and to put together goody bags and guide packs. So we welcome everyone, regardless of their physical ability - sit down jobs are available. But a tolerance to cardboard is definitely needed!
So if you fancy getting involved with a National Group within CAMRA that is totally practical (no experience required), then get in touch for further details; anyone is welcome to come along and see if this is for you.
