MSSC Volunteer Opportunities

The volunteer-run MSSC Committee always welcomes additional helpers in any capacity – whether it’s help on the day of an event like the Children’s Christmas Party or taking bookings for London Trip coaches. Here are a couple of areas needing extra help at present:

  • Marshall ADG Induction Lunch volunteers (lunch included): Have a chat with new employees at their Part 2 inductions, and help us promote the MSSC by talking about how you’ve enjoyed what it has to offer.
  • MSSC pass holders (e.g. Duxford, Shepreth): Take bookings, pick up and drop off the passes at Security.
  • Event organisers: We have plenty of ideas for new corporate passes or events – we just need some more people to help organise them.

Please contact MSSC@marcamb.co.uk if you feel you can help.

Calendar for free passes bookings viewable on Outlook

For those in Marshall ADG, the calendar that the MSSC Committee uses to record bookings is now viewable as a read-only calendar on Outlook.

This applies to Duxford, Botanic Gardens, Shepreth Wildlife Park, Denny Abbey, and Giggle and Wiggle Soft Play.

Depending on your version of Outlook this may be accessed slightly differently, but in general if you:

  1. Go to your Outlook Calendar
  2. Find “Open a Shared Calendar…”, usually on the lower left side of the screen 
  3. Type “MSSC” in the search bar and click “OK” 
  4. Select “Marshall Sports&SocialClub” and click “OK” 
  5. You should now be able to see the bookings for Botanic Gardens (Green), Duxford (Red) and Shepreth (Yellow), as well as Denny Abbey, and Giggle and Wiggle Soft Play. [Note, if the appointments are uncoloured, this likely means that the passes have been returned to the MSSC, ready for the next member to take them out]
  6. You can tick the MSSC calendar in the lower left panel under “People’s Calendars” to view it, and untick it to hide it.
  7. This should allow a good proportion of our members view availability before contacting the MSSC Committee Points of Contact for making the bookings. We hope this makes things a little clearer!
  8. Any feedback, please let Joelle Garden know.
