Event Volunteer

We're looking for volunteers to help us out at a range of events this year. All our face-to-face events were either cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic. In 2021 we want to introduce events back safely for those who are comfortable attending them, but we will also be continuing our virtual events and aiming to make all our events as accessible as possible. 
What does the role involve?
We will send you a list of all our events for 2021. You can choose which events you would like to volunteer at – you can do as many as you like. 
You may prefer to help every now and then or have a more structured role with set days and times  it all helps!
Our events range from running or cycling challenges, family fun days, fairs, car boot sales, running stalls at our Christmas fair, a glamourous Step into Strictly dancing show and other events that aim to bring people affected by a brain tumour together.

As an event volunteer your role could involve: 

  • Meeting and greeting guests
  • Marshalling at a challenge event along the route and cheering on our participants
  • Running a stall – selling our merchandise, running a tombola or raffle to raise money
  • Selling raffle tickets
  • Serving light refreshments
  • Helping to set up or dismantle tables, chairs, equipment etc
All volunteers will be fully briefed before any event. We'll give you some key facts about the charity, just in case anyone asks, but there will always be a member of staff or other volunteers on hand to help! And it goes without saying that your safety will always be our priority.

We do not receive any Government funding and rely on donations to continue doing what we do. Volunteers are vital to ensure we can continue to fund research and continue our support! So, join #TeamYBTC today.

Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity believes that it is always unacceptable for a child, young person or adult at risk to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard their welfare, by a commitment to a practice that protects them.

Our safeguarding policy, processes and practices provide protection for the children, young people and adults at risk who receive YBTC services, and provide staff and volunteers with guidance on procedures they should adopt in the event that they suspect a child, young person or adult at risk may be experiencing, or be at risk of, harm.
