Volunteers needed at Leamington half marathon this weekend

VOLUNTEERS are being invited to step forward and help out at Leamington Half Marathon this weekend.

The event, organised by Raceways CIC, has again partnered with Myton, which has three hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick, and have the only Hospice Inpatient beds in Coventry and Warwickshire. They care for people living with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses including Respiratory, Heart and Neurological conditions, Cancer and Organ failure.

Volunteers need to be available between 7am and 1pm on Sunday (June 23) and roles range from course marshals, drink station marshals, manager assistants and those able to help set up and break down the event.

Kirsty Leahy, of KLP, is hosting the event for the fifth year.

She said: “All the events proceeds go direct to the charity partners. Without our super awesome volunteers, many of whom have been with us for a long time, we would not have been able to fund a large amount of the amazing work they have carried out over the years.

“Our volunteers are at the core of our events and we always need you so if you’re reading this and you’d like to be a part of our volunteer event crew we’d really love to hear from you. Volunteers vary from those with absolutely no experience through to managers from the London 2012 Olympic Games. Anyone who’d like to get involved is welcome.”
