What kind of help is needed?

Volunteers are needed to prepare the briefing area in the sports hall as well as accommodation facilities.

Volunteers are needed to help with cooking, cleaning, washing dishes and keeping the place nice and tidy. Hot Air Ballooning takes place just after dawn and in the house before sundown, so breakfast is served at 04:00 am. Volunteers in the kitchen team will need to be flexible and accommodating to meet the needs of tired balloon crews.

Volunteers are needed to assist balloon teams as observers of the event.

Volunteers are needed to document the event with photos and films – to be shared on social media.

What does it cost?
Your food and accommodation will be covered throughout your stay. Transportation to get to the event you will have to cover yourself.

 

What’s in it for me?

A lot of fun and many new friends – and valuable experience.
You will be part of the buzz that surrounds an international sports event.
You will receive a document stating what tasks you have undertaken as a volunteer.

You will get to witness and take part of a unique school centre with an inclusive environment.  At our school centre we have teachers in training, challenged youth and people with special needs, all of us are in one way or the other contributing to making this event happen.
