Volunteer at our sports events

  • Location: Various
  • Closing date: Tuesday, 31 December, 2019 - 09:00

We hold an extensive programme of sports events across the UK to raise money for the fight against blood cancer – from the London Landmarks Half Marathon to the Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon - and we're looking for volunteers to get involved in all sorts of ways.

This includes: 

  • General volunteer – We have post-race receptions at a lot of our events where we meet our participants to congratulate them and provide refreshments. Before they arrive it’s all hands-on deck and we need help getting everything ready and ensuring it all runs smoothly throughout the day. It’s a great chance to congratulate our supporters after they’ve completed their challenge. 
  • Meet and Greet – The finishing line at an event can be very busy so we need volunteers to meet our supporters and guide them to our post-race reception 
  • Cheer points – Our cheer points are dotted along event routes and give a much-needed boost to runners, cyclists and triathletes. Each cheer point is armed with noise-makers to keep our participants going. 
  • Photographers – We need photographers to take photos of our amazing participants for them and future marketing. 
  • Masseuses – After an event our participants are often in need of a sports massage, if you are a qualified masseuse then please get in touch. 
  • Bucket collections – We hold bucket collections at the Great North Run at the charity village and at train stations around the country. This gives us a chance to raise awareness and funds at the same time! 

What will I get out of it? 

  • Contribute to the fight against blood cancer 
  • Meet like-minded people 
  • Help your community 

How much time do I need to give? 

Any time you can give would be appreciated, whether you are able to contribute the occasional evening or weekend day or are looking to volunteer on a regular basis we would love to hear from you!
