Volunteers required: Friday 4th November from 4pm

The Bristol & Bath Group of the MND Association have been chosen as the charity of the year for this year’s Downend Fireworks Display. This is a great event and apparently an amazing display of fireworks which is very popular. Being the chosen charity means we are able to have a stand on the night, hold a collection, have banners on display and collection tins on the bar. Could you help us man the stand and with the collection?
