UPDATE: Operation RED NOSE

The nights available for a company night are December 10, 11, 18 and 31. Operation Red Nose doesn’t usually take the 31st as a company night for a number of reasons – the first being that they realize it’s difficult to get volunteers to commit.

Volunteers would use their own cars as escort vehicles only – a driver and navigator get in the client’s car.

Operation Red Nose pays out gas to the volunteers. I’m not sure what this year’s nightly stipend will be yet. There’s also food (snacks) at headquarters.

Volunteers need to be at the office – in Place 400 near the pub – at 7 p.m. the night of for training. There’s not going to be a separate training night this year. Call outs start at 9 p.m.

Volunteers have to have proof of insurance – but IBC does cover the insurance and liability for that night.

We propose Friday, Dec 10th. We hope that works for all who have shown interest. That way Saturday is open for us to take advantage of the program 🙂

Please fill out this form Volunteer Form 2010 . Police checks do need to be made but I will see if I can streamline the process.

HELEN

3 rounds,
  • Run 400m 
  • 12x Pull-ups

IF rain does not let up, we will replace RUN with a 500m ROW …. Amping things up 🙂

Post time and comments.
