First Base (BHT)

Register your Interest

Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) are looking for Event Volunteers to help out at our flagship fundraising event Bike It Brighton. Taking place on Sunday 7th June at Preston Park Velodrome, this cycling event offers participants the choice of a 30 or 60 mile ride across the South Downs or a family-friendly cycle around the velodrome. We need volunteers to help with tasks such as registering participants, marshalling the cycle track, handing out medals and selling raffle tickets. 

Skills

No experience is necessary for this role, a cheerful attitude and enthusiasm are all that you need! Being able to follow instructions and work well as part of a team as well as independently are a plus. 


Benefits

  •  Working as part of a team
  •  Working outside
  •  Experience working at sporting events.

Practical Considerations

There is limited parking available at Preston Park but it's easily accessible by bus (5, 5A & 5B). There is step-free access onto the velodrome from the road but the road surface is uneven. The timings are flexible and we can work around you - any time you are able to give is amazing. We will be at Preston Park all day from 7am-5pm so if you are able to give even 2 hours of your time within those timings then we'd love to hear from you!

When do I need to be available?
