Spraoi and Red Hat seek volunteers

Spraoi is recruiting volunteers from all walks of life for this year's festival, August 3rd, 4th and 5th and the volunteering programme is being supported by software giant, Red Hat, whose offices are on the Cork Road.

Red Hat's Director of Software Engineering, James Mernin, says the partnership is a very natural fit: "Spraoi and Red Hat are both driven by creative people with a passion for communities and this association will allow our team to become involved in this year's festival.

We also have an international team here and it's great for them to have access to artists from around the world at Spraoi."

Spraoi volunteer co-ordinator Vicky Wall is looking for people with a wide range of skills. "Whether you are a butcher, baker or candlestick-maker I'll find a job for you. It's a great buzz being at the heart of the action, and meeting people and together we are putting Waterford on the national and international map," she says.
