We have successfully established luncheon club fundraising groups in other counties: members join and meet on a monthly basis for lunch, entertainment and to participate in fundraising activities supporting Cancer Research UK.

We are seeking a volunteer group leader, to help set up a similar group in Surrey.

Time Commitment

This is this is a new volunteering opportunity and you’ll be free to put in as much time as you’d like to set up a new group, We understand that it will take time and you may need to spend a couple of hours a week working together until the group is established. This may be something you’ll want to discuss with your Local Fundraising Manager.

Why we need you

Be a part of a new fundraising group in Surrey; raising awareness and life-saving funds to help beat cancer sooner.

Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person.

You’ll also need to have a passion for the work of Cancer Research UK.

What support will we give you?

We’ll give you everything you need to establish a fundraising group starting with an induction programme and  regular support from your local fundraising manager.  We’ll provide any advice you need relating to any fundraising activities you’re planning.  We’ll keep you informed about the research you are helping to fund and you’ll have the opportunity to visit our labs and meet our scientists to see how your fundraising is saving lives.

We’ll re-imburse agreed out of pocket expenses.

What benefits can I expect?

  • The chance to develop new and existing skills
  • A opportunity to meet new people
  • Travel and other expenses, as agreed
  • A unique insight into the world fundraising and the charity sector

Where will I be based?

As community-based fundraisers, all our regional staff are home based and we don’t  have an office in Surrey, so you’ll be working from your home and in the local community too.
