RBL Membership Communications Announce Exciting Volunteering Opportunities
Do you live near Sheffield and want to support Team UK as a volunteer?
Following the success of the Invictus Games in Sydney in 2018 and previous Games in Toronto, Florida and London, The Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes and the Ministry of Defence have designed a programme leading up to the next Invictus Games in The Hague in May 2020.
This celebrations of sports will culminate in the Team UK Invictus Games Trials in Sheffield from 22-26 July 2019, playing host to:
•A qualifying event for selection for the Invictus Games 2020. All athletes who wish to be considered for the Games in 2020 must attend the Trials.
•The UK national championship for wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans. Therefore, this event is also suitable for those who wish to compete in adaptive sports but have not wish to be selected for the Invictus Games in 2020.
We are excited to announce that there will be a full volunteering programme in support of the UK Team Trials. Volunteer roles will be across a range of workstreams, including ticketing, stewarding, information desk, field of play support and fundraising. Some roles require specific skills, while others are available to anyone regardless of their previous experience.
Volunteers must be available for the full week from 22-26 July 2019, which significantly increases the efficiency of the volunteer programme and reduces the load on support staff to keep re-training volunteers. Accommodation will not be provided as standard for volunteers, unless there is a valid reason to do so e.g. individual has a specific skill required for the Games. One meal will be provided per shift for each volunteer, in the form of a packed lunch.
