I’ve been thinking long and hard about this and its not a decision that fills me with glee, but as it stands with only 6 days to go to the event I have only had one offer of help. As we’ve said before, our sport is run for us, by us, and as a result if no-one volunteers then there can be no event. Most of the tasks are relatively simple and guidance will always be at hand if you’ve never volunteered before. You will always get a run if you want one, and if you’re going to go to an event why not offer your services for half an hour. If everyone did this life would be easy.
We’ve given you all plenty of opportunities and reminders to volunteer for this event, but seeing as no-one has, I can only assume that you’re not interested in it. In which case, this is irrelevant, but sadly for all of you who are, I’m going to give you all the weekend off!
As it stands at present, the situation is the same for Hillsborough in a month’s time. Please don’t let it befall the same fate.
