Why we need you:

This is a great one-day volunteering opportunity at a local sponsored 5km/10km for Cancer Research UK. You could be involved with marshalling along the route, helping with any admin needed on the day, as well as offering general support for the success of the event.

You will be helping to ensure the smooth running of the event by;

  3. Encouraging participants along the route and offer support if needed
  4. Helping display route signage if required
  5. Supporting with any contingency plans
  6. Helping participants with any key information

We ask volunteers to bring their mobile phones with them. These will only be used in case of an emergency and if the first aid team need to be informed of any incidents / accidents. We also recommend volunteers bring refreshments with them and dress appropriately depending on the weather. At Bramham Park, there will be coffee/food vans in the set up area and toilets.

  • Friendly
  • Good communicator
  • Willing to work as part of a team

What support will we give you?

  • All volunteers will be briefed on arrival, providing all key information for the day and introducing you to all staff and other volunteers.

A volunteer brief will be emailed in advance to include some timings and information of the day

What benefits can I expect?
