Camelon Winter Festival Volunteer Steward

  • VO85033
  • One-off volunteering


Description

An adapted version of the annual Camelon Winter Festival will be going ahead this year, in a COVID safe way!

Volunteers are needed to help at the 'Big Screen' event. Over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December, a traveling LED video screen will tour through the residential streets of Camelon and Tamfourhill. The mobile screen will be mounted on a van which will slowly make its way through the streets and stop at key community locations with safe and controlled viewing areas. The Big Screen will be showing messages of festive joy, a special seasonal appearance from local singer songwriter Dionne Hickey and three inspiring videos made with
creative residents.

Volunteer stewards (3 for each planned stop) will help to ensure social distance is maintained and that only joy (and not COVID) is being spread! All PPE will be provided on the day and there will be a safety briefing in advance.
