We are looking for volunteers to help make an annual music festival in Reading, Berkshire successful as well as raising money for Oxfam.
Oxjam Reading Takeover takes place on Saturday 14th October 2017 12pm noon – 11pm across 9 venues* with local Reading artists and bands playing.
Your duties may include (depending on venue and time of day):
– Exchanging pre-booked tickets for wristbands
– Selling wristbands and single venue entry tickets
– Raising awareness of Oxfam’s work (full info will be provided)
– Fundraising with donation buckets
– Selling Oxjam merchandise e.g. t-shirts
– Handing out event flyers
In exchange for your time, you will receive an Oxjam wristband to enjoy the festival outside of volunteering. We ask for approximately 4 hours of your time and breaks will be provided.
You are welcome to volunteer with friends; please mention their name when you sign up.
A briefing will be provided on the day before you start and you will be supported throughout the day from your dedicated Venue Manager and Volunteer Co-ordinators, Lauren and Rob.
Oxjam Reading Takeover has raised around £55,000 in the past 5 years and we hope raise a further £10,000 with your help!
