Brief description of volunteer roles:

1. Befriender: The most direct and interactional experience for the volunteers to engage with the elderly (and some disabled) beneficiaries. The ideal is to have a 1-to-1 pax pairing with the beneficiaries, accompanying them and talking to them. The volunteers also accompany them to the various games booths, sit with them during the performances, and bring them food from the booth.

2. Logistics: To help carry and move things around to the various areas in the venue, such as food & beverage, boxes of items, packing/unpacking, etc.

3. Stage Hands: This team will be stationed near the stage and assist in all ad-hoc performance related tasks.

4. Booth Helpers: There will be several game booths at the event for the beneficiaries. Volunteers will get the satisfaction of manning and the booths and encouraging the beneficiaries as they participate.

5. General/Unspecified: The organisers are also open to volunteers who do not have a specific role in mind, and are open to moving between roles as and when needs arise.

If you have any queries, please contact the organisers Shiuh Foong at 65862326 or Mei Xuan at 65862352
