Galway Daily sport Public event on Special Olympics volunteering opportunities

Special Olympics Ireland are hosting an event in Galway next to provide information on volunteering opportunities.

The event will take place at Menlo Park Hotel on Wednesday, September 21st from 7pm-8pm, for anyone that might be interested in hearing about local volunteering opportunities within the county.

There are various different volunteer roles on offer across clubs in the county and also upcoming events in the area.

The local club representatives will be there on the night to talk to anyone who may be interested in coming on board in a voluntary role.

Regional development officer Breffni Gorman says that they welcome anyone interested in volunteering, with no prior experience required.

“You don’t need to have a background in sport as we have lots of different volunteering opportunity types across a number of different clubs and events.”

“In September the Special Olympics regional swimming event takes place in Leisureland Galway and it’s a great opportunity for someone to come on board and get involved with Irelands largest volunteer led organisation”.

If you would like to hear more about how you can get involved come along to the event.
