One off opportunity: The Great British Showcase with Global Buddies

Don’t have much time to volunteer but want to make a difference to new international students’ first experiences at UoN? Then this one-off volunteering opportunity might be for you!

The Global Buddies scheme is running a Great British Showcase, an event where new international students can find out about different cities and regions of the UK that they might want to visit during their time here. We will have stalls representing: Nottingham, Scotland, Yorkshire, London. We have space for 3 more stalls so if you would like to showcase a different city or region, please specify which one on the sign-up form!

Each stall will have leaflets, photos and postcards about the area, showcasing its tourist attractions, history and activities. We are looking for at least one volunteer to staff each stall, either somebody who is from that area or has lived there/visited there a lot. Staffing a stall involves interacting with international students, telling them about your area and giving them insider tips!

The Great British Showcase is on Friday 20 September from 11am to 2pm but we will need help setting up (from 10.30am) and clearing up (after 2pm). You can volunteer for part of the event or for the whole event.

If you would like to volunteer, please sign up using this link, writing your name, email and city/region next to all of the time slot(s) you would be available for:

The deadline to sign up is Tuesday 20 August. If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact Isobel on
