CARE International are looking for volunteers for our 1 day annual event #March4Women, celebrating International Women’s Day on 8th March. This year there is a focus on gender and the climate crisis.
This is a 2 part event:
1. Indoor Rally
The event will be held at Royal Festival Hall and will be an energising rally with live music, speeches and panel sessions. We will need volunteers to help our CARE team set up, show guests to their seats and other vital jobs to ensure the event runs smoothly. Please note, you may not get the opportunity to attend the outdoor march if you choose to volunteer in the indoor rally.
Start Time: 08:15AM, Southbank Centre
Finish Time: 14:00
2. Outdoor March
The march will follow the rally, starting at Whitehall Place, walking down Whitehall, past Downing Street and finishing in Parliament Square with a finale show of speeches and live music. We will need volunteers to help steward the march.
Start Time: 12:00
Finish Time: 15:30
No previous event experience required, however if you do have previous experience, please outline in your email. An interest in international development, gender or climate change is desirable, but not essential.
