tours

We have an exciting partnership with Big Church Live joining them on great tours up and down the country. At most Big Church Live events we have a couple of volunteers come an hour or so before doors open to help set up, man and pack down a resource table - we give volunteers more information on what this looks like specifically depending on the tour.

Roles


  • Cafe

    Coffee, brownies, great conversations...
    The Tearfund Cafe is a much loved mainstay at many of the biggest events. You’ll be on hand to serve festival goers delicious ethical drinks and snacks. Also you’ll get to chat with customers about Tearfund.

    You’ll be cheerful, practical, fairly fit and enjoy serving people, even when it gets busy (and it does!).

    Role Descriptions: Cafe Team Member

  • Exhibition Stand

    If you think everyone should know about Tearfund
    If you want everyone to know about the wonderful work Tearfund does, this could the role be for you.

    Get chatting to festival goers about Tearfund. Leave them excited and ready to support our work. You’ll be ready to chat to complete strangers. And you’ll need to be on your feet for quite a bit of the day, though there are regular breaks.

    Role Descriptions: Stand Team Member, Audience Team Member (BCDO Only)
