“Message to all CAMRA members” Fancy Helping Out at The Doncaster Branch CAMRA Beer Festival?
Last year’s festival was a success on many levels, we succeeded but as noted by all we were under-staffed in some areas. Some volunteers having to carry out multiple roles but doing an excellent job in difficult circumstances.

A call is going out to existing members and new, to volunteer. We are at the pre-planning stage for next years festival in June and if we cannot guarantee the staffing levels required, then the Doncaster Branch cannot take the risk of running next years event.

The first challenge is to establish a working committee, some of last years committee have moved to pastures new and some are now letting others have a go at filling the many roles. We need to appoint officers who will carry out the key roles to ensure that the event takes place and runs smoothly. Don’t worry if you haven’t done festival work before other members of the team are there to help guide you.

There are many different roles involved in planning the beer festival so there’s scope for all kinds of talents. We also need new ideas to support it further. It’s not hard work but does take some of your free time, however, it can be really enjoyable and rewarding.

If you are interested in being a volunteer on the Festival Working Committee or would like to volunteer in another role can you please contact the festival volunteer and or the branch secretary e-mail addresses below;
