We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers to get involved with our project.
We believe that having an organic cohort of passionate volunteers adds a new dimension to our project. They generate fresh ideas and feedback on processes, provide a wider range of experience and knowledge to share into the project and they also involve the community in St. Margaret's so that it becomes an integral part of the thriving culture in the heart of Royal Deeside and further afar to Aberdeenshire and across Scotland. Our volunteers get involved in many aspects of the promotion, set-up, running and set-down of our events.
Promotion: This can range from spreading word online about upcoming events to handing out flyers and putting up posters around the surrounding villages of Braemar.
Set-up/down: Due to our diverse programme, many of our events have different requirements in the use of our space. This means that the stage frequently needs to be put up or taken down, exhibitions needs to be hanged, chairs need to be put out and lighting fixtures needs to be altered. These tasks take time and with a few extra hands we would be able to host more events with a quicker turn around in between.
Stewarding: We are always on the lookout for some friendly faces to help us run events. Whether its stewarding an exhibition, taking sales or manning our bar, anyone wanting to get involved who enjoys a natter is most welcome.
