Come and volunteer at DROP TOP! Partisan wouldn’t be able to function without the support of our volunteers working set-up, bar, door & clean-up shifts to make our events happen. If you’re a new member or an interested first-time volunteer, it’s a great way to meet other Partisan people and learn how to get more involved. Come lend a hand and have fun whilst you’re at it!

Volunteering slots are available here! https://signup.com/go/sOdAZBh
