Volunteer opportunity description

Join the British Red Cross Events Team at the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 28 April. We are looking for volunteers to bring the event alive and support our incredible #TeamRedCross runners!

The British Red Cross is dedicated to showing the Power of Kindness to people in crisis throughout the world. That crisis might be a teenager with a broken leg who needs a wheelchair so she can keep going to school, or it might be the family who have lost everything in the typhoon that has swept through their village.

For our London Marathon Cheer Point, whether you are into dancing, playing an instrument or simply want to smile and cheer them on, we want you! Your role will be to encourage and spur on our 45 fab runners as they pass our Cheer Point.

Previous years have seen us create a cheer point with a DJ and cheer leading squad. We want to make 2019 the best year yet. You can take this opportunity to bring your own ideas and do something amazing for charity and your CV!

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with British Red Cross by supporting our fundraising team.

We offer:

  • Full briefings on the day
  • A fun day out in London
  • A Red Cross t-shirt and noise makers
  • Light refreshments
  • Opportunity to meet new people and be part of a dynamic and inclusive team
  • Chance to gain experience and confidence interacting with the public



  • Minimum age 18
  • Available on 28 April
  • Enthusiasm
  • An interest in meeting new people and giving our supporters a unique experience
  • An interest in the event, exploring and volunteering in new environments especially out in the fresh air!

On this occasion we will not be reimbursing volunteer expenses.

We expect all our volunteers to uphold British Red Cross Fundamental Principles.
