Games Galore Volunteers

Type: Emotional / social support, Event Volunteering, Information / advice

Location: All of Plymouth

We are a small group of volunteers who build large traditional wooden games to take for free to local events held by local community groups or charities. Our aim is to provide a stand alone games event to help raise funds for the groups or charities or to add extra fun to any event that they are holding. We provide our games for both indoor and outdoor events, and we have over 40 of them to choose from!

The role of the volunteer is to help with the setting up and clearing away of the games for any event. Our volunteers need to pretty able bodied to carry, erect and dismantle the games, outgoing, cheerful fun loving. A love of old style games as opposed to computer gaming essential!!! This can be quite demanding physically as some of the games and the tables they stand on are heavy. During the event we love the volunteers to mingle amongst the games and help those playing with the method of play etc., perhaps befriend a single player for a while to get them involved with other players and to generally keep a happy fun atmosphere going. Our players span the whole age group from toddler up to pensioners and all disabilities.

Does this sound like something you’d love and be great at? If so we’d love to hear from you.
