Latest Feedback

Left on Tuesday 27th June 2017 for GoFest North 2017 Family Festival of Sport, Dance, Health & Fitness

I turned up at 7.30 am and there were a good amount of volunteers. As a keen sports player, I thought my experience would be utilised. At first I was told I would be on the registration desk and on the security desk- which I thought would be good experience. But after about 15 minutes I was asked to stand outside the Man City shop and guide the people in and was left there the whole time- with no break and no lunch. I just left after my voluntary hours were up and no one has been in touch since- not a good feeling for a 16 year old who got up at 5.30 a.m. to volunteer for 6.5 hours. I hope this was because this was the first GoFest in the North and so people were busy- but defo needs to be planned better next year.
