Volunteers are being sought to help at the Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th June 2019.
The event, taking place at Wycombe Air Park in Booker, is a free, fun day out with live music, air displays, fairground rides and other entertainment with the aim of giving our local armed forces and their families a day to relax and enjoy time together.
It also gives local residents the chance to show their thanks to the men and women of our armed forces for everything that they do.
Volunteers are asked to give just a couple of hours of their time. Tasks include helping with hospitality, car parking, selling programmes, keeping the site safe and clean, backstage support and other duties including setting up on the Friday afternoon or helping to clear up the site on Sunday morning.
Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, HM Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire who helps organise the event explained: ‘Events like Armed Forces Day don’t happen without a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
In previous years we’ve been lucky enough to call upon the support and assistance of a dedicated group of volunteers to help us ensure that the event runs as smoothly as possible.
This year we once again need people to help out in whatever way they can. What better way to say thank you to our armed forces than to give up just a couple of hours during the weekend to help out?‘
Anyone aged over 14 can volunteer, but anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. In return for volunteering you will receive a free limited edition t-shirt and free refreshments on the day.
