    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Come and join the Circus and volunteer at the MoonWalk Scotland on Saturday 8th June 2019 from Holyrood Park. Come one, come all and join with thousands of women and men walking an overnight marathon in decorated bras.

    You could start your Saturday night spectacular in MoonWalk City, by joining one of 24 different teams from around 5pm through to midnight – from litter picking to selling merchandise, registering baggage to handing out volunteer uniforms!

    The night time is where the challenge really gets going for our amazing walkers. If you like the nightlife, marshalling or giving out water at one of Edinburgh’s famous landmarks could be for you! Start times vary between 7pm to 11pm, depending on your role, and last on average 8 hours. We can also offer site based roles at MoonWalk City throughout the night.

    Finally, the early morning team take the helm on Sunday 9th June from 6am until the last walker crosses the finish line, around midday. Watching the sunrise against an Edinburgh skyline is quite a sight to see! This truly is the most testing time for our walkers …whether you join the route or MoonWalk City teams…your kind and motivating words could be all that is needed to get someone across that finish line!
