Why we need you:

We have some fantastic supporters in West Sussex who are organising a Family Fun Day and Gift Fair over the weekend of 15/16/17th September. We’re on the lookout for some passionate, motivational and inspiring people to join our amazing team of volunteers. Without volunteers, our events simply couldn’t happen!

There are two event’s happening over the weekend, when you apply please state which event you would like to volunteer at:

  • The Pink Gift Fair, Horsham, RH12 1RL
  • Family Fun Day, Gatwick Aviation Museum, RH6 0JT

What will you be doing?

There are lots of roles to get involved in. Handing out leaflets, selling raffle tickets, manning the door, acting as signposts for guests, help at the registration table, running a fun activity or helping us to set up and break down the event  These crucial roles ensure the event runs smoothly and guests have a great time. This role is perfect for team players with great communication skills who can use their initiative when dealing with anything that may occur on the day.

What are the benefits?

  • Cancer is happening right now, join in knowing you are making a valuable contribution to life saving research being carried out as we speak.
