There are a many ways volunteers can support us; whether it be at our various fundraising events, supplying in kind help with graphic design, printing etc or helping out around the office. From cheering people on at a race to helping promote an event, there are many ways to get involved.

Why volunteer at an event?
You’ll become part of a dedicated events team, have fun and mingle with people from your own community ... and most importantly you'll know you're helping to save women's lives.
Help organise an event:
Planning and organising an event can be a challenging but rewarding experience.
There are many ways you can get involved. You could help organise your own fundraising event (and we can help you set up your very own event page free of charge). Or if you feel you have a strong contact list and can contribute sponsors, participants etc, talk to us about joining one of our coterie groups and help organise fundraising events for the Foundation.
The Women’s Cancer Foundation does everything we can to keep overheads down to a minimum in the office, to ensure most of our funds go directly to research.
We are a small team of only 2 full-time staff, therefore we would love you to come in and help out when you can; whether it be researching potential partners or merchandise, typing correspondence, graphic design work or helping to sort the storeroom, we appreciate any time you can give to help out.
