Volunteers sought for cultural events

Denbighshire County Council is hosting a range of sporting and cultural events this summer and would like to invite local residents to play a vital role in them by volunteering.

Volunteer groups and charities looking to fund raise for good causes are also being invited to be part of these regional and national events, and will be given specific areas to collect donations from.

Students needing to carry out volunteer hours to complete qualifications will also receive a signed certificate of volunteer logged hours.

Events include,the Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay which is coming to Denbighshire on Fri 30 May, and will be visiting Rhyl, the Clwydian Range AONB at Moel Famau, Ruthin and Llandegla and all events are looking for marshalls and stewards.

There are also the triathlons in Rhyl and Denbigh in need of volunteers for marshalling and pool counting.

The official opening of the Rhyl Harbour with a seafood festival and water sport activities and Marine Lake is also looking for volunteers.

For a full list of volunteer opportunities please visit or contact Volunteer co-ordinator Matt Hilliker on 07798742290 or

Specific volunteer clothing and training will be provided where necessary dependant on the volunteer role undertaken. Some volunteer placements will offer expenses towards travel and food or if not this will be provided by the Council.

Jamie Groves, head of Communications, Marketing and Leisure, said: "Denbighshire has been the highest performing council for the last three years in Wales, and as part of this change in performance we want to become ‘closer to our communities."

"These events are beneficial for the local economy and business, enticing visitors and improving tourism. By working closer with our residents, volunteer groups and charities, we want these events to become part of the fabric of our county.

"Sharing ownership of future events with communities will give us all a stake in the events and the feel good factor of successfully delivering national sporting and cultural events on our doorsteps."
