Volunteer at an event

Bring your energy and enthusiasm and join us as a volunteer at one of our challenge events, to support and encourage everyone taking part.

As an event day volunteer, you will be invaluable in making an exciting atmosphere for our fab fundraisers, providing support and encouragement to get them to the finish line of their challenge. 

Our Volunteer Cheer Champions are the eyes and ears of The Brain Tumour Charity on event days, spotting our fundraisers and giving them much needed encouragement. We're looking for peple with great interpersonal skills and the ability to deal with the general public in a professional manner. 

We also need Volunteer Photographers to help capture all the magical moments from the day, taking photos of our runners, walkers, cyclists and volunteers in action. If you're able to capture great action shots and attract our challengers' attention to create happy, waving photos - we'd love your help!

We'll provide full briefings before each event, so you know what to expect on the day.
