An appeal has been made for volunteers as preparations get underway for next year’s Whitecraig Gala Day.

Organisers are keen to set up a separate team of hospitality volunteers.

A spokesperson said this would not be a monthly commitment but would involve helping with activities such as selling raffle tickets and running hospitality tables at gala events.

“Being able to attend meetings is not mandatory for this,” said the spokesperson.

“We have roughly three or four events each gala year and the gala day itself needs volunteers.”

Anyone who would like to help out should message the gala’s Facebook page.
