Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us to help save lives.

As a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and advice from the Government, we’re pausing all volunteer applications for the moment. This is to protect you, our volunteers, staff and supporters.

Because your well-being is our priority, we’ve closed all our shops until further notice and some of our mass participation events – including Race for Life – have been postponed. Like everyone today, we’re working hard to overcome challenges, and we’d love for you to play a role in our future progress.

You can still sign up to volunteer – it just may take a little longer than normal to process your application, and there may be a delay in starting some roles. We promise to be in touch as soon as possible. In the meantime, stay safe, and look after yourselves and each other.


From coffee mornings and car boot sales to quiz nights and murder mysteries, fundraising’s always more fun as a group!

Last year, our fundraising groups raised an incredible £9.72 million towards life-saving research, and as the local face of Cancer Research UK they are absolutely crucial to our progress.

Want to be part of a fun, passionate and innovative team ready and raring to help beat cancer? Get creative with friends, family or colleagues and form your very own fundraising group, or get together with one of our existing groups and join them in the fight.
