Volunteer Opportunities

second_q_034Spinners Volunteer Programme

Our exciting new volunteer opportunities scheme allows all members of the community to help out behind the scenes at Lancashire’s premier basketball club.

The Lancashire Spinners Volunteer programme offers a great opportunity for you to gain valuable experience for your future career or simply a way to help out your local elite basketball club. We have volunteer opportunities in both Blackburn and Bury, and across Lancashire.

In return for just 2-4 hours (per week) of your time, the Lancashire Spinners offer a range of benefits including:

Free tickets for you and your family
For each home game you can have a free ticket for you and you family to come and watch the games. (Maximum of 4 tickets total per game).

Free Lancashire Spinners Merchandise
Each volunteer will receive a Lancashire Spinners t-shirt when they first volunteer. Those who complete 10 weeks of volunteering will also receive a Lancashire Spinners sweatshirt. 

We will also support you in knowing how to use your volunteer experience to enhance your CV and will log your volunteer ours to evidence your volunteering in the future if needed. This is a great opportunity for students studying sport, event management, media, marketing, music, sports coaching and more generally any course! Volunteering is a critical part of developing university and job applications as well as a terrific way for more experienced volunteers to invest in the community. We also accommodate students looking for volunteering as part of their Duke of Edinburgh awards.

Where possible we strive to offer our volunteers both on the job training, and access to training courses.

To volunteer just email ray.porter@lancashirespinners.co.uk or use our contact page
