Team Challenge – A Different Kind of Saturday!
Following their successful event in 2019, Leverndale Hospital is once again hosting a “Meander for Mental Health” on Saturday 19th September from 1pm – 4pm. Community members will be invited to explore the grounds and surrounding green spaces.
Volunteers are required from 11am – 5pm. This will enable organisers to brief everyone and direct them to their tasks – as well as having time to clear up and de-brief afterwards.
This is a wonderful challenge for teams of people looking to develop their communication and team works skills. It will also benefit people seeking a different type of volunteering role! Team members will be asked to marshall the routes, encouraging participants to take part in the many events that are taking place – everything from guided walks, face painting, music, sports tasters and various art activities.
IMPORTANT: Anyone taking up this challenge should have an open and positive attitude to mental health and mental illness. We are calling on teams and team members who have a friendly manner, good communication skills and who enjoy interacting with the general public.
You will be required to provide your own lunch as there will not be a hot food vendor on site, but you should retain receipts and travel tickets as these costs will be reimbursed. All volunteers will be provided with fruit and water throughout the day.
There will be planned breaks for everyone during the event and these will be discussed in full at the volunteer briefing.
The purpose of this event is to promote good mental health through physical activity and the arts.
There will be a volunteer photographer on site to take photos of your organisation and/or team. Your organisation will be provided with copies of the pictures for your own promotional use.
SOUNDS GREAT DOESN’T IT!!
