Be part of the team - that is the message as the Bully Wee launches its own volunteer programme.
Gordon Thomson, Director of Community and Volunteering, was delighted to see the launch of the new scheme: "Over 100 people volunteer on a weekly basis for Clyde FC ,from coaching youngsters to writing in the match-day programme. There are a number of activities that people with a few hours to spare each week can get involved to assist the club. From Abronhill to East Kilbride there will be activities to help in whatever way they can to build our club up again.
"Thanks to the sponsorship of the Supporters’ Trust we have created a dedicated Volunteer and Events page on which will detail volunteering tasks at the club as well as news of fundraising events throughout the year. We hope this will enable people to keep up to date with activities at the club and consider the ways in which they can help the Bully Wee.
"Certainly, for some of the activities a love of the Bully Wee and football is a help but for other roles it won't be essential. All we ask for is a commitment to fulfil the tasks described. If you are interested in any of the roles you can download the application form provided and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
Opportunities to help the club are not limited to the tasks described. Gordon continued, "You may have special talents, abilities or experience that you would like to use in helping Clyde FC. If you think that there are other ways in which you could assist, then don’t hesitate to contact us via email@example.com . If we have the resources available and your idea fits with our aims, we will do our best to help put your ideas into action."
Gordon concluded, "I’m delighted that as a club we are recognising the value that volunteering brings to us, the club simply could not function if it wasn’t for people giving up their time voluntarily. I trust that this scheme will help more people consider the ways they can help the club and help build the Bully Wee up again on and off the park."
