Banbridge Special Olympics Club is a multi-sports club that is currently recruiting volunteers to fill a number of general roles on a Wednesday evening from 7pm to 9pm in Banbridge High School and on a Friday evening from 8pm to 9pm in Banbridge Leisure Centre.

A general volunteer role will cover a number of tasks including:

Therefore, no previous experience is required for this role. All we ask is that you are enthusiastic, reliable and can work as part of a team.

In return, you can expect to find a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the club where you will also have the opportunity to build new friendships with other volunteers through various events and social outings. Overall, you will gain a great deal of personal satisfaction for working with a very special group of athletes.
