Colour Blast Collage

Galloway’s, a charity supporting blind and partially sighted people in Sefton and Lancashire, is looking for a team of volunteers to join in the fun at this year’s Southport Colour Blast.  Can you help?

Southport Colour Blast is a unique and fun 5k event taking place on Sunday 9th July at Princes Park, Southport. Along the course participants are showered in a different colour at the end of each kilometer.

To make the event a success, Galloway’s are looking to recruit for a variety of volunteer roles.  These include:

Start/Finish Area Volunteers:  volunteers who can help with registration, giving out runner packs, medals and water bottles.  Volunteers would be needed from 9:30am until around 12:30.

Marhsals:  volunteers who will cover various marshalling points around the course, guiding our runners in the right direction and making sure that they finish the event safely. Marshals will probably be needed from 10:00am until 12:30.

Colour Station Squaddies: We are looking for volunteers who don’t mind getting a bit messy!  We will have 5 colour stations throughout the course and require a team of volunteers at each station to throw the coloured powder at our runners as they run past you.  Colour Station Squaddies will probably be required from 10:00am until 12:00 (this will depend on where you are located along the course).

ALL volunteers will receive clear instructions and guidance before the day and an on the day briefing.  The aim of the Colour Blast is to raise as much money as possible for those living with sight loss in the local area.  We hope that people will understand that for this reason we are unable to offer volunteer expenses.  If there are event t-shirts leftover at the end of the event, volunteers will be invited to take one away with them, as a thank you for their support.

If you would like to volunteer at Southport Colour Blast, or would like any further information about the volunteer roles, please contact Anna Scott, North Lancashire Fundraiser, on 01524 414846 or email anna.scott@galloways.org.uk
