Wanaka Trail Ride

Event and Facility - General Assistance - Wanaka Trail Ride - Volunteer Assistant - General Information

Organisation Summary:

Following three hugely successful rides in 2015, 2016 and 2017 Montessori Children's House Wanaka and the Wanaka Primary School are working together to host their fourth safe, family-friendly, fundraising motor bike trail ride on Sunday, 22nd April 2018.

This event is held on an annual basis, generating a significant portion of both schools' fundraising amounts each year. These funds will be used to enhance our children's school environments and experiences.


Volunteers are required in a range of roles for this event based around Wanaka. Please note - volunteers do not need to be interested in or have a knowledge of motorbikes to get involved as we are looking for help in lots of different areas including:

* Catering
* Paramedics
* Administration
* Marshalling (on foot or motorbike)
* Gear checking
* Car parking
* Course and base paddock set-up (and then clean up)

Located in and around Wanaka. 929 State Highway 8A, Long Gully Station (approximately 20 minutes drive from Wanaka; over the red bridge but before Tarras).

Time Commitment:

Event day in 2017 is Sunday 23rd April and in addition volunteers are being sought to assist with roles in the week before and after.

Volunteer shifts will vary and we aim to accommodate anyone who has time to offer.

Skills Required:

Skills vary depending on the role assigned and any volunteer keen to help out will be matched to a role that suits their availability, skills and interest.

Skills Gained:

Depending on the role undertaken volunteers will gain an insight into event planning as well as having the opportunity to meet new people, develop new skills and we hope will gain satisfaction from enabling this new event to take place and raise funds for many of the local children at Montessori Children's House Wanaka and Wanaka Primary School. We strive to make your involvement enjoyable and rewarding and worth giving up your time for!
