Volunteer roles (also change of environemt and different challenges provides stimulus for tackling existing work-challenges, different perspective,c hcange is as good as a rest, etc)
There are various ways in which you can offer your professional skills or expertise in support of our cause. You can impart your knowledge via talks, giving us a new outlook on a specific topic or an insight into a particular area of work. For exmaple in 2008 a B&Q Customer Insights Manager donated his time and skills to help us develop new and innovative fundraising ideas.
You could also support us by playing a vital role in making our events happen, working in one of our shops and even helping us to campaign for a healthier future.
“We had a great weekend, we never realised volunteering could be such good fun. If nothing else, we had some real quality time together as well as helping a good cause, plus it was a rewarding and humbling experience for us all.”
Sean Murphy, Senior Technical Officer, Network Rail, volunteered at Rob Roy Challenge in 2007 which raised funds for Cancer Research UK
Training and skills development
Even if your company doesn’t have a volunteering programme in place, you might like to see if your HR team would consider volunteering for Cancer Research UK as a skills development tool.
For just a few hours, the whole day or on an ongoing basis, your motivation, help and skills make all the difference. Contact us to volunteer and help beat cancer.
