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 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 entry for you and your family
For each home game you can have a free family ticket for you so your family can come and watch the games. (Maximum of 4 persons [2+2] per game).

Free Lancashire Spinners Merchandise
Each volunteer will receive a special Lancashire Spinners t-shirt when they first volunteer. Those who commit to regular volunteering will also receive a Lancashire Spinners sweatshirt. 

We know your volunteer experience will enhance your CV and we will log your volunteer hours 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.

To volunteer just email steve.wheatley@lancashirespinners.co.uk or through our listing on the Bury VIP scheme
