I’d love to help out, what options are available?

We would love for parents to get involved and there are many ways to help out.  Roles are varied and include occasional helper, executive member, fundraising member or leader/assistant leader.  You can give as much time as you like and it doesn’t need to be every week – we’re always looking for people who can run a night that fits their skills or help out with activities.  If you’d like to get more involved just speak to a leader or get in touch via the Contact Us page.
