Volunteers Wanted for Galway's SeaFest 2017

8th May 2017
Volunteers Wanted for Galway's SeaFest 2017

Volunteers are wanted for SeaFest 2017 to help make this year’s national maritime festival one to remember. The three day celebration will take place in Galway from 30 June to 2 July 2017. The Marine Institute, coordinating SeaFest on behalf of the Government Marine Coordination Group, is calling for volunteers to apply now.

Johnny Donnelly Managing Director of Arcana, the event management specialists appointed to stage SeaFest 2017, said, “Volunteers play an important role in making SeaFest 2017 a memorable event. Our volunteers are valuable members of our event team, as they assist in making the festival run smoothly and help ensure it is enjoyed by all visitors. “Volunteers have the opportunity to be part of a fantastic marine-themed festival,” Mr Donnelly said. “An action-packed programme of entertainment and attractions on and around the water is planned, which is sure to delight visitors of all ages and also encourage them to explore the wonders of our ocean.”

SeaFest raises awareness of the value and opportunities provided by the sea, and will include tours of ocean-going vessels, aquatic displays, interactive exhibitions, a seafood fair, as well as fun and educational activities for children.

To become a volunteer for SeaFest 2017 visit http://seafest.ie/volunteer and complete the online application form. All volunteers must be aged 18 years or older. Volunteers must be available from 9am to 6pm and have the option to volunteer for one, two or the three days of the festival. Volunteers may also be selected for Garda Vetting.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
