What’s black and white and read all over?
The Telstra-backed volunteer skivvies arrived this week, the next step towards the inaugural Bendigo Writers Festival which takes place at The Capital and surrounds in View Street on August 10,11 and 12.
Nick Papaz of Telstra Business Centre Bendigo said backing the Writers Festival is a way for the company to show their appreciation to the people of Bendigo.
“Telstra Business believes we need to invest in our local community to support the growth of Bendigo and the region,” Mr Papaz said.
“We want to support what it has to offer to the rest of both Victoria and Australia.”
This week Capital Theatre Finance administrator Deborah Blake, who is also BWF’s volunteer co-ordinator, met with Kylie Webster of Telstra Business Centre Bendigo to try out the new skivvies.
“We’re getting together a big group of volunteers who will be helping out across the festival weekend,” Ms Blake said.
“Wearing these distinctive black skivvies, they’ll be easy to spot.”
Ms Blake said anyone interested in volunteering can register their interest by emailing email@example.com.
“There’s already a lot of interest in the new festival, a real buzz about it,” she said.“We know there are many people ready to show their support.”
