THE hunt is on for volunteers to take part in this year’s Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies.

And people in Clydesdale are being encouraged to take part.

A mass cast recruitment drive is now on to find the talented individuals who will be the life and soul of the party as Glasgow and Scotland invites in the world with the warmest of welcomes.

Glasgow 2014 chief executive, David Grevemberg, said: “This is about showcasing the very best of a city and a nation to an international audience and how better to do that than through the enthusiasm and passion of its people?”

Around 3,000 voluntary cast members are required for the ceremonies, to be held at Celtic Park and Hampden, which will be seen by live audiences of more than 40,000 people and a potential global television audience of more than one billion.
