Become a community volunteer
We are looking for volunteers from across the UK and Northern Ireland who are passionate about raising awareness and improving survival for pancreatic cancer to support us in our work. Raising the profile of pancreatic cancer within your local area is a fantastic way to help and we really appreciate all the support you can give.
What is a Community Volunteer?
A community volunteer means you will become an ambassador for Pancreatic Cancer Action by supporting our fundraising campaigns and helping to spread awareness about the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer in your community.
You could be representing Pancreatic Cancer Action when talking to people whether it be community organisations, schools or local businesses.
We will support you with everything that you need to develop in your role. We will provide awareness and fundraising materials, practical advice and the opportunity to meet other reps to swap ideas!
Here are some of the roles that our Community volunteers may take on:
- Holding awareness stands and occasionally giving short talks.
- Getting people and local businesses involved in fundraising and campaigns such as Bake a Change
- Manage our collection tins within your community. Empty, record and bank the funds
- Attending cheque presentations and thanking fundraisers in person on behalf of PCA.
- Volunteering at events and holding cheering stations
- Promoting your contacts to take part in our bespoke events and challenges such as Striding for Survival and the Cotswolds Way.
- Research ‘Charity of the Year’ opportunities in your local area. Most businesses, schools, churches and community groups adopt a Charity of the Year.
If you have any questions or want to apply for any of the volunteer roles, please email Murray@panact.org or call on 0303 040 1770 during office hours.
