Volunteer at Notts Pride

Many people choose to volunteer for Notts Pride as an individual. 

Our work would not be possible without our amazing volunteers and it can be a rewarding way to support the LGBTQ+ community.

Most of our volunteer roles only require a few hours each year so it does not have to be a huge time commitment for you. As a thank you, all of our volunteers receive a goodie bag, which in the past has included items such as rainbow umbrellas, t-shirts, lanyards, a free sandwich and drinks for after the march, all provided by supportive local businesses. 

Here are the volunteer roles available at Notts Pride: 

Pride march stewards

As a Pride march steward, you will be required for a few hours on the last Saturday of July to help us support the safety of the march through the city centre. You are then free to enjoy the rest of the afternoon at Notts Pride.

We meet a few weeks prior to the event to provide a full briefing and to allow you to meet other volunteers. 

Hockley donation collectors

If you are keen to take part in the march or just be a spectator without responsibility, you can still get involved by helping us collect donations after the march in Hockley during the afternoon. As a free event, donations from the public are an important way to keep the event free for everyone for years to come. 

We meet a few weeks prior to the event to brief you and let you meet fellow volunteers. 

For both of the above roles, we have a dedicated Notts Pride volunteer coordinator who is on hand throughout the process to help with any questions.

Notts Pride committee support roles

For those wanting to play a bigger role,  we also welcome volunteers to support the committee by helping with planning, co-ordinating the volunteer recruitment and networking with local businesses. 

For these roles, we ask for 4-5 hours a week for the 12 weeks leading up to Notts Pride.
