We rely on a team of brilliant volunteers to make our events run as smoothly and as successful as possible. Volunteering is a great way to get involved and show your support for The Christie charity.

And what’s more, you will be playing a vital part to support our incredible fundraisers on their event days.

By becoming a Team Christie volunteer, you will be involved in lots of exciting events and help make a huge different to those that take part. You will have the choice of different opportunities depending on the event: you could be involved with anything from helping up set up or pack down the event, marshalling the course or joining a cheering point.

Anyone can join us as a volunteer, whether you’ve got event experience or not. Volunteers under the age of 16 will need to be supervised by an accompanying adult.

We have lots of exciting events coming up in 2023. We’re currently looking for volunteers for: 

  • Night of Neon, 4 February 2023 – Marshalling
  • Tower Run, 12 March 2023 – Cheerer
  • Great Manchester Run, 21 May 2023 – Cheerer
  • Walk of Hope, 23 September 2023 – Marshalling 

Christie charity volunteer roles

Cheering is such an important role at a sporting event. It really motivates our amazing fundraisers as they complete their challenge. 

You will be part of a lively and enthusiastic cheer team ready to make lots of noise: cheering, clapping, whooping, or even singing to provide lots of encouragement for our incredible walkers, runners or cyclists. 

You will also be helping with setting up the cheer point, giving out cheering materials, making sure the area is kept tidy and helping with packing down.

By marshalling at one of our events, you will be helping us deliver a safe and successful event for our participants. 

You will be ensuring participants stay on the right path, contact the fundraising team if there is an issue (i.e. a participant has taken ill), make sure supporters are given a medal and help participants find where they need to go on event day. 

You will also be providing lots of encouragement to our incredible walkers, runners or cyclists.

Please note: roles may change ahead of events. A member of the sporting events team will provide information on your role ahead of the event day. 

It’s easy to volunteer, simply complete the below form and let us know the first event you’d like to volunteer at. A member of our events team will be in touch with you shortly after.
