A free day at the spectacular Wings and Wheels air and motor show is on offer from Jigsaw in exchange for volunteering for a few hours on the Jigsaw stand at the event. This is just one of several volunteering opportunities as we extend our engagement with the local community.
Wings and Wheels is a fantastic event for the whole family at Dunsfold airfield, home of Jigsaw. Military and civilian air displays range from the Red Arrows to a World War II Lancaster bomber. The motor show includes stunt bikes and classic cars. The show is on over the bank holiday weekend of August 26th and 27th. Jigsaw needs volunteers to help man a stand where we will be offering arts and crafts entertainment for children and providing information about the Trust’s work.
We are increasingly taking part in external public events like this and need help in spreading the word about Jigsaw through the manning of stalls, handing out information and collecting donations. We’re aiming to build a bank of volunteers – could YOU sign up? Joining the bank of volunteers doesn’t mean commitment to helping at every event but gives us a team of potential helpers we can ask as the first port of call.
We’ve already been busy at the Godalming Town Show and the One Great Day charity fundraising event in Guildford’s Friary Centre. Also planned for this year are the Always The Sun music and arts festival in Stoke Park, Guildford, on September 8th to 10th. Looking further ahead, we’ll be needing marshals for the hugely successful Jigsaw Run on November 26th.
There are also many regular volunteering opportunities at the school, ranging from helping in the library to welcoming visitors and taking phone calls in reception, and driving a minibus. They’re listed in the careers section of the Jigsaw website.
