‘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?

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.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to ensure more people survive cancer. We support the work of more than 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses throughout the UK, fighting cancer on all fronts. Every day, our researchers make cutting-edge discoveries in our labs, and our doctors and nurses pioneer new treatments with patients in hospitals. We run high-profile health awareness campaigns and provide clear information to help people understand more about cancer and the steps everyone can take to reduce their risk of developing the disease. We also lobby the government to make sure cancer stays at the top of the political agenda.
