Helpers wanted for Congregations November 2015

The Congregations Office is preparing for the forthcoming November ceremonies in Rochester and Canterbury Cathedrals.

We would welcome and appreciate offers of help for any, or all of the ceremonies.  Your support on these occasions is very much appreciated and contributes significantly to the success of the event. We would encourage departments and Schools to volunteer as much as possible for their respective ceremonies as students genuinely appreciate seeing familiar faces on the day.

There are a number of roles to be filled throughout the Congregation period including:

  • Graduate registration
  • Ushering
  • Ticket collection.

Training will be provided in advance of the ceremonies for all duties, where required. In addition, refreshments will be made available throughout the day and any car parking expenses will be refunded later on production of a ticket. Exact timings for the day will be confirmed once duties are allocated. You can use the following link to check the ceremony schedule on the Congregation webpages:
