Volunteers are being encouraged to take part in Norwich city centre's popular dinosaur trail this summer.
East Anglian children's charity Break said there were a handful of positions available for its GoGoDiscover T-Rex sculpture trail.
As part of the National Volunteers’ Week, Break is looking for T-Rex Rangers who would be required a few times throughout the summer as part of the colourful trail.
Rangers will assist with the cleaning and presentation of the sculptures, of which there will be 20 spread across the city.
Sarah Bunn, community fundraising manager at Break, said: “We are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible and committed team of volunteers to support our prehistoric parade.
"As well as it being lots of fun, the Trail Rangers will receive training, develop new skills and enjoy behind-the-scenes access to one of the biggest events taking place in Norwich this year.
"As a charity, we are always looking for people to spread the word about Break and we have lots of opportunities to volunteer at our amazing events to raise funds to support the work we do with children and young people.”
The Trail Rangers will receive a T-shirt for their volunteering efforts, which have been supplied by Stevensons.
GoGoDiscover is delivered by Break in partnership with Wild in Art and the 2021 trail takes place between July 12 and September 11.

The charity is also raising funds during the trail to continue to provide lifelong support to vulnerable children and young people in care, on the edge of care or leaving care across the region.
Break is also hoping to recover some of the £2.1m reduction in income due to Covid.
