Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Reading Borough Council (RBC) in RG4

Reading’s Physical Disability and Sensory Needs Network is hosting the town’s second Disability Awareness Day on Wednesday 8 August 2018 at the Weller Centre in Caversham.

The event will celebrate the diversity of Reading residents and visitors who may have a long-term condition, a physical disability, sensory need or neurological condition.

  • Helping with set-up
  • Welcoming visitors and reception desk
  • Promoting the event in the town centre and Caversham
  • Helping with refreshments
  • Signposting visitors
