Helpers Bookings

If you intend to be a helper and haven't booked your travel package, we urge you to do this as soon as possible so that we have enough time to complete all of the checks and preparation.

Helpers Declaration

Once you have booked with Tangney Tours and ticked the helper box, they will advise us, so we can contact you to get all of the checks/preparation arranged.  


If you are not able to book yet then we would ask you to complete a helpers declaration so that we have all the helper data that we need.  The link is:


Online Training

In addition to practical training, helpers will be required to complete online training prior to the practical preparation day on 5 June 2022.  

Once you have booked you will be sent a link to enrol for this training.
