This exciting volunteering opportunity is aimed at anyone over 16 years of age and volunteers will receive free access to the event (tickets cost £30), a t-shirt and lunch will be included. It is also anticipated that there will be an after-event party (still to be confirmed).Although the event is entitled Tedx Cumbernauld Women with 15 female speakers, the event is not limited to just women – this volunteering opportunity is available to all.
