Awareness Events Volunteer
When We Need You
From 23/02/2010 onwards
If you would like to make new friends, learn new skills and make a real difference to our charity then volunteering for Bowel Cancer UK is for you. Our charity will be running a host of events throughout the year starting with Bowel Cancer Awareness Month in April. We need volunteers to help us inform the public of the symptoms of bowel cancer, who is at risk and the bowel screening programme. By hosting information stands in shopping centres, hospitals, gyms, workplaces and at local community events we can spread our information to the public. You will be an important part of a fun and lively team. We will give you all the training you need and make sure that you are benefiting from this great opportunity.
