Volunteer for City of Lights

Each year we recruit around 150 volunteers to support the event, through collecting money, crowd management, handing out parade route maps, etc. We can never have too many volunteers, so we would love to hear from you if you think you could help. It could be on the night or it could be a few times a year to help fundraise. To sign up
