Brick Building Event Volunteer

If you are a fan of building Lego© models or letting your imagination run wild, this volunteer role is for you!

Every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the summer holidays, we will be running brick building sessions where members of the public can create their own versions of Suffolk landmarks and landscpaes out of Lego© Bricks. The creations will be added to our special map of Suffolk. The sessions run from ten unitl four and partcipants will book in advance. 

As a Brick Building Event volunteer you will be assisting the event manager to prepare the room for each session, sign in prebooked participants, and encourage people to create their favourite places in Suffolk.

There will be three sessions: 10:00-11:45, 12:00-13:45, and 14:00-15:45. You can decide which session you would like to volunteer for and the specifc dates you are available. The Volunteer Engagement Coordinator will organise adding your preferrences to the event volunteer rota.
