Join the team at Scotland’s biggest game fair

Volunteers at the 2012 Scottish Game FairThe Scottish Game Fair is celebrating its silver anniversary and we want you to be part of it!

This year’s Fair is shaping up to be the best event ever and the organising team at the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is planning to make this a huge celebration of 25 years at its Scone Palace venue.

But to enable these celebrations the GWCT is keen to enlist the support of volunteers to help shape what is an incredibly popular event with a great reputation for being relaxed and friendly.

There will be a variety of roles to suit all abilities and each volunteer will gain free entry to the Fair and the chance to participate in some of the pursuits on offer, as available. This opportunity will be a great addition to any CV and it is a fantastic chance to be part of the silver celebrations. Sponsoring the volunteer drive is Westerton UK Limited.

Volunteer co-ordinator Celia Innes said:

“I was an Olympic Volunteer in 2012, so know what fun you have being part of an enthusiastic team. The Fair is a wonderful event and I would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like to be part of it.”

The Scottish Game Fair has become one of the leading countryside events in Scotland and almost 40,000 people are expected to descend on Scone Palace to join in the celebrations this year. This popular Fair is renowned for its diversity, offering an exciting weekend of activities, entertainment, shopping, outstanding food and, importantly, an opportunity to learn more about wildlife and conservation.

The GWCT’s Scottish Fair is being held on Friday 5, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7th July 2013 in the stately grounds of Scone Palace on the banks of the River Tay in Perthshire.
