Volunteers in Cricket


Volunteers

GP&R, like most clubs, relies heavily on the hard work, commitment and dedication of volunteers and we are always looking for more people to help - and you don't have to play the game to get involved!

Many volunteer tasks do not require a knowledge of cricket or involve a heavy or regular commitment of time and we won't ask you to take on more than you can manage.

Helping out is a great way to get to know people at the club and contribute to the club's development. Not only is it a chance to 'give something back' but voluntary work looks great on your CV and is often looked upon favourably by prospective employers.

So whether you are a player, family, friend or someone who would like to become part of the club, why not get involved? - willing helpers are never turned away!

Just contact Chris Webber, Membership Secretary, using the 'contact' section of the website, or download and complete a Volunteer Agreement Form.
