Oxfam Trailwalker seeking volunteers

Eastern Bay residents are being asked to do their bit to help support the fight against poverty in the pacific.

It comes ahead of this year's Oxfam Trailwalker which will see hundreds of teams of four taking on either the 50 or 100km walking events in Whakatane -- raising money for Oxfam at the same time.

Fundraising and Events Manager Lizzie Quill says more people are needed to help cheer on walkers at the finish line.

She says anyone who wants to help out should sign up.

To get involved email otwvolunteer@oxfam.org.nz or call 0800 600 700.
