Volunteers needed for Christmas in the Park

Youthline will be partnering up with Coca-Cola once again for this special 25 year celebration to be the charity partner at the iconic
Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park event in Christchurch on Saturday the 24th of November.

We cannot do this alone and we need your help! Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far, we are still on the lookout for more awesome people to volunteer and help us raise funds for our crucial community services.  We currently have nearly 50 volunteers which is great but we still need another 100 to reach our goal of 150 volunteers this year.

You’ll be helping us to collect donations before it gets dark and then selling cool light up merchandise on the park once the sun goes down. We’ll provide you with a BBQ dinner and a free tee-shirt to wear on the night. This event is a fantastic opportunity for us and we would really love you to be part of it!

The more volunteers we can recruit the more we can get among the thousands of revelers and represent Youthline to the communities of Christchurch.

Youthline is often the first point of contact for young people in New Zealand to access a wide range of youth development and support services. We help young New Zealanders to reach their full potential.

Sign up today and join us for a fun night out while supporting a wonderful cause in your community.
