Volunteer Now are encouraging people throughout Northern Ireland to volunteer for next summer’s World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) 1-10 August 2013.
The Games will involve 10,000 competitors from over 70 countries competing in more than 60 sports. It is also expected that more than 15,000 of the athletes’ families and friends will take the opportunity to visit Northern Ireland.
It will provide an opportunity to showcase Northern Ireland’s ability to organise and host major events and impress visitors with our friendliness and capacity to deliver a spectacular successful Games.
Some 3,500 volunteers will be needed to help make the 2013 Games the friendliest ever. There are many roles available, which will give people with a range of skills the chance to be a part of this once in a lifetime opportunity. You could be volunteering within the Opening and Closing Ceremony or the Athletes’ Village, or perhaps roles within sport, accreditation, transport, media, welcome ambassadors, media... and many more.
