Volunteer for CARE

Volunteers at a CARE fundraising event

Another way to help CARE fundraise is being an event volunteer

Every year CARE organises a wide range of amazing fundraising events around the UK.

Getting involved as an event volunteer is a great way to support our work: you can help us to run an amazing event and at the same time give our supporters a fantastic experience. Doing this encourages some great fundraising along the way for CARE’s essential life-saving work.

From marshalling to cheering, collecting donations to putting up signs and banners, we always need extra pairs of hands to ensure our events go smoothly – there’s always something to do!

Come and volunteer on our events and you’ll be showing how much you care about fighting poverty and defending dignity.

Need convincing? Here’s what Gary, a volunteer at our 2017 Race to Respond event, told us:

I just wanted to drop you all a note to say once again what an incredible event you put on yesterday. I know you've been working on it for some time, but to see something so complex executed so smoothly was inspirational. I’m still buzzing this evening.

I know Race to Respond was intended to give participants a taster of the type of work CARE does, but I realised on the drive home this evening that as volunteers we perhaps got an even better taster. I can’t tell you how pleased we are that the event was a success – it didn't deserve anything less!
