A volunteer group is calling on people to lend a hand at a sporting event next weekend.

North Herts Children’s Services is holding a summer family fun run event at Royston Leisure Centre and is need of some budding volunteers who are willing to step up for marshalling duties on the course for a maximum of two hours.

The run on Sunday, May 17, promises to be an enjoyable family fun run along a 3km guided route.

Participants can jog, walk or toddle round and buggies are welcome.

Children will receive a medal for completing the route.

They will then enter the fun zone where there will be an array of exciting activities to participate in.

The team has organised arts and crafts, face painting, inflatables, a limbo competition and even a beach where people can build sand castles.
