Read what past volunteers have said:

"I volunteered last year for the first time on one of the Gaelforce Events (Turf Guy) and it was absolutely brilliant!! I had so much fun helping in this event with this team! The organization was top class, my job was really fun and I had people from Gaelforce bringing me hot food and drink to make sure I was alright. Great interaction, buzz, fun between everyone, I would definitely do it again!!"

"Beginning my course in outdoor adventure, volunteering at outdoor adventure events seemed a sensible thing to do to gain experience. Since starting my volunteering career with Gaelforce Events I have not looked back and have helped at many events. I have met so many great people and gotten so much experience along the way. The organising crew do such a great job of helping the volunteers fit into the team!!”
