Volunteers Needed.
If you would like to help out on the day we are looking for volunteers to man the 5 marshal points around Rousay, This involves being at the marshal point from the start of the race until the last person has gone past your 'point' and handing out water and sweets as required.  All volunteers are offered a £10 voucher which they can spend in the Rousay Shop or Taversoe as a thank you.  If you are able to help out, please let Helen know in the office 821229 or email
