|Volunteer Recruitment||Are you a confident public speaker? If so, this role is perfect for you! We are in need of an Announcer for our home galas (Pointscore and Club Champs) - this involves being available for the whole session of the gala and making (scripted) announcements, using the microphone, throughout. Our current Announcer is training to become a Judge, so she will be working in this role during forthcoming galas, we therefore currently have no Announcer, so would very much appreciate your help with this.|
