More Volunteering Information

Event Volunteers give their time on a ‘one-off’ or occasional basis. Event volunteering is fun and flexible and just a few hours can make such a huge difference.

Every year, hundreds of people organise or take part in amazing fundraising events to help raise money and awareness for Candlelighters. Our fundraising events would not be what they are without the help of our wonderful volunteers. Event Volunteers play such a vital role in helping to create a successful day for everyone involved.

Volunteering at an event is a fun and rewarding day out, it’s a great way to experience the fantastic atmosphere, meet other people and be part of a brilliant team.

Whether helping with bucket collections, marshalling, running a stall or wearing our t-shirts and banging our cheer sticks to encourage and support runners, every Event Volunteer helps to make a difference.

If you are brimming with enthusiasm and energy and can spare a few hours, we would love to hear from you!
