Volunteer at The Twilight Walk

Can you help The Twilight Walk run smoothly? We need a team of volunteers to welcome walkers, keep them on route and cheer them on. Up for the job?

We need your help to make sure each walk is a successful and special day for everyone. Volunteer at The Twilight Walk this autumn and side by side, you’ll help us and all our walkers pick up the pace of progress.

Each volunteer role is vital in ensuring The Twilight Walk runs smoothly, so no matter the role you play, you’ll make a big difference to us and all our walkers.

Before the event, we’ll send you a pack including information about registration at the event, what you can expect next and your own The Brain Tumour Charity volunteering t-shirt.

It was so uplifting to know that I had made a contribution to making the day a success for all involved. I would have no hesitation in taking part again in future years.

What experience do I need?

Anyone over the age of 18 can volunteer at The Twilight Walk, whether you’ve been involved before or not, all you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved.
There are several roles available and we will always try to allocate roles based on your preferences, but please note that some roles have limited space. In these cases, priority will be given to volunteers who, for health reasons, require a seated or indoor role.

Our enthusiastic Walker Registration Volunteers welcome our walkers to The Twilight Walk, sign them in when they arrive and return from the walks, and help out with on-the-day logistics at the event venue. They do a fabulous job of helping The Twilight Walk run smoothly.

At the end of the walks, our Walker Registration Volunteers get to thank our walkers for taking part and give them their medals – a moment that is really special for The Twilight Walk community.

Our fantastic Greet and Cheer Volunteers are based just outside the venues, and play an integral role in making the event so inspiring. They help to manage the car park, welcome our walkers to The Twilight Walk, and guide them into the building.

Another crucial role of our Great and Cheer Volunteers is handing out water to walkers as the walk starts, and cheering walkers back in at the end when they’ve completed the walk. The event simply couldn’t take place without them!

Our Merchandise Volunteers help us sell a range of items before and after the walk, from t-shirts and hoodies to Christmas cards and teddy bears. All the profits go straight towards our charitable goals: doubling survival and halving the harm of brain tumours.

Our Merchandise Volunteers provide fantastic customer service and have a great impact on the cheerful atmosphere at the event venue. A staff member will be on hand to support you throughout the day.

Our wonderful Route Marshals cheer on, support and motivate our walkers throughout the 10km The Twilight Walk route, and help us to create an exciting, energetic and enjoyable walking experience.

Working as a team with our section leaders (staff), they ensure our walkers are safe and looked after throughout the walk.

Volunteer at someone’s walk

We’re encouraging people to hold their own walks in their local community. Some of these walks will have a large number of walkers, and we’d love you to support them. To find out about walks near you and how you can help, please email thetwilightwalk@thebraintumourcharity.org and let us know your location.

My favourite part was getting to see everyone out walking to raise awareness, wearing their red t-shirts and enjoying the walk.
