Volunteers Urgently Needed This Sunday

Our region will be holding a Fundraiser and Public Awareness day on 14 October 2012 at the Newcastle Harness Racing Club, Broadmeadow. The event is aimed at raising awareness and funds for intellectually impaired Hunter Valley Special Olympics athletes.

Volunteers are needed to assist on the day and it is anticipated that there will be 5000 people in attendance.

The event is broken down into two segments, a Car & Bike Cruise and a Community Fun Day. There will be live bands, entertainment with sporting and dancing displays, a range of fairground amusements, food stalls and the bar from 12pm for a relaxing drink. There will also be a parade of athletes along with Olympians and Para Olympians.

You can volunteer as a Car Park Attendant, Marshall, BBQ Cook and also collecting entry fees.

Volunteers are encouraged to contact Janene Lowe (Special Olympics) on 0414 587 137 or at
