Volunteer Vacancy: BSL Interpreted Pantomime Event Organiser

Cinderella was the Panto last year
PDDCS are looking for a volunteer to help us run one of our best events of the year.

Every year, PDDCS organises a trip to the Pantomime at the Key Theatre for our families and this year we need someone organised and super-cool to get the show on the road.

Ideally you'll have some experience of organising small trips or events, be a happy sort-of-person, be interested in meeting deaf people and children and want to make a difference to your local community.

All expenses that are incurred will be paid for and when all the happy kids leave the theatre full of ice-cream and happy memories, you'll be Peterborough's No.1 volunteer.

It's a one-off task that our small charity needs help with or the Panto is off this year.

Here's what's involved:

  • Write an advert for our website and email
  • Purchase tickets from Theatre
  • Organise sale of tickets to families
  • Management of the monies
  • Liaising with theatre
  • Organising free ice cream for deaf children
  • Becoming a hero

If you've ever wanted to put your organisational skills to use, be a volunteer for a small charity without making a long-term commitment and make many local deaf children very happy, please email our Chairman Andy Palmer on

We look forward to your email!
