Description

Ayrshire Cancer Support exists to ensure that help is readily available for those who need it. In line with this mission Ayrshire Cancer Support seeks to involve volunteers to: ensure our services meet the needs of our clients; provide new skills and perspectives and increase our contact with the local community we serve. We currently need event volunteers. As part of our fundraising and promotion of Ayrshire Cancer Support we frequently organise events and we wouldn't be able to ensure the smooth running of these events without the help and support of volunteers.

What will you be doing?

  • Meet and greet
  • Help in the setting up and clearing down of the event
  • Cheering and supporting participants
  • Help with the administration and managing of the event
  • Supporting the organisers
  • Volunteering at information stands to raise awareness of our services
  • Selling of raffle tickets/ bucket collecting

Responsibilities may vary between projects but we will match a task to your area of interest or expertise.

Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet new people, use your free time in a useful way, add to your CV and help others. You don’t need any special skills for most opportunities, just to be keen and have a willingness to get involved.
