CUMBERNAULD locals are being urged to seize the opportunity and submit an application to volunteer for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
 
The town’s MSP is encouraging local people to apply as a volunteer for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as the deadline looms, this Thursday.
 
The application process opened on 14th January 2013 and will close at 11.59pm on 28th February 2013.  All interested volunteers have to do is log onto www.glasgow2014.com/volunteer and complete their application before the deadline.
 
 
Mr Hepburn has stated that interested individuals from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth should note that they do not have to have specific experience or have volunteered before; all that’s required is an enthusiastic attitude and a friendly and welcoming manner.  Mr Hepburn has also stated that this is a great opportunity for the people of Cumbernauld and Kilsyth to be involved in Scotland’s biggest peacetime volunteer mission and hopefully to be part of Scotland’s biggest sporting event.
 
Commenting Mr Hepburn said: “Time really is ticking now and I would urge individuals from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth to make sure that they pass the finish line in time and complete the application for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
 
“Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are an ideal opportunity for those who are interested but may never have volunteered before as not only is there no specific experience required but any training needed will be provided, all that’s asked of volunteers is a keen and warm attitude.
 
“I’m sure that the people of Cumbernauld and Kilsyth will agree that this is a great opportunity to be involved in an important event for Scotland and will seize this opportunity to participate in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games before the application process closes."
 
When the application process was opened nearly 20,000 people expressed their interest in making history as volunteers at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, stretching from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Stirling and even London.
 
“Those who have expressed interest come from every walk of life. We have people who work, students and others who have retired, but they all want to give up their time for the Games,” said Valerie Mitchell, Head of Games Workforce for Glasgow 2014.
