Volunteers to help with our Midnight Walk, 2nd October

Description of the role:

Would you like to be involved in St Elizabeth Hospice’s biggest fundraiser of the year?
The event is starting and finishing at Trinity Park as normal and there will be a 10km and half marathon route.
Many roles will be available, from route marshals, car park marshals and water stop helpers, plus more roles as the date draws nearer. Volunteers must be over 18 years of age, unless volunteering with an adult.
Role specific timings are to be confirmed however the event registration will be opening to walkers at 19:30 and walkers will leave Trinity Park at 21:00 with an approximate event close time of 03:00am – however we generally tend to finish a little earlier than this.
Start timings may be extended if needed due to government guidelines at the time and any staggered starts that we may need to add in to assist with social distancing.
If you’d be interested in volunteering then please apply or see the Hospice website, and let us know if you have any preference on roles, who you’d like to be paired with and any restrictions you have on timings on the night
We look forward to seeing you there!

About the Opportunity Host Organisation

Host Organisation: St Elizabeth Hospice
Organisation Profile:

St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive illness. Our work is centred around an individual's needs, which means specialist support, wherever it is required. We care for people at home, in the community or at the Hospice. We help people deal with problems such as pain, anxiety and fatigue, as well as offering practical advice and family support.

St Elizabeth Hospice is an independent charity which provides services free of charge. Our services cost £9.1 million a year to run, with almost three quarters of that figure coming from the local community. We rely on fundraising, donations and volunteers. We are grateful for any support given to help us grow local Hospice care for local people.
