‘Lovely experience, the general feeling that I was getting was very special, the way that the participants and the volunteers were supporting each other, the opportunity to see so many people doing something without having any personal benefit’
Erisa, General Volunteer
What benefits can I expect?
- A unique and rewarding night out exploring the iconic sights of Newcastle in a completely different light
- Cancer is happening right now, join in the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a valuable contribution to life saving research being carried out as we speak.
- Experience of supporting one of the UK’s leading charities for one of their biggest annual fundraisers
- The chance to meet new people and make new friends.
- Learn some great new skills and develop your confidence to support personal and career development
What support will we give you?
We’ll be with you every step of the way sending monthly updates and exclusives in the lead up to the event. Three weeks before the event, we’ll confirm all the details with you and give you a call to make sure you’re happy and answer any questions.
At the event you’ll receive a volunteer t-shirt, snack pack and any other kit required to carry out your role. Your volunteer manager will give you a briefing and be there to offer any support throughout your time with us.
At Cancer Research UK we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We will consider making any reasonable adjustments to support volunteer applications from people with a disability or health condition. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures and believe that volunteers from diverse backgrounds will help us to beat cancer.
Any time on 7th October 2023 that you can spare will be invaluable to support staff and thousands of walkers.
