Volunteering for Heartburn Cancer UK

At the moment people volunteer and support us in an adhoc way as we are quite a small charity.  For example, if we are looking for help with an event or to man an awareness stand we have managed to get people to support us.  As we look to grow and raise more awareness, and organise activities in different parts of the country, we are interested in setting up a more regular team of volunteers in a structured way. 

Jess Harris Coop awareness day July 2019

To begin this exercise we would like to understand:

  • who might be interested in helping us
  • what time they might have available to help us
  • what sort of volunteering activity people might be interested in supporting


If you have any skills and experience in any of the following activities, or you're just interested in getting involved in some way to help us raise awareness and save lives then we would be really interested in hearing from you. The sort of things we are thinking about are:

  • Distributing leaflets, posters and information booklets
  • Bucket collections
  • Hosting an awareness stand
  • Helping to set up a support group in your area
  • Helping to support events
  • Experience of organising events
  • Experience of applying for grants
  • Social media skills

For now we are gathering information to see who might be able to help and what they might be able to do, so that we can understand the level of interest to support us. If any of this appeals and you think you might have some time to spare we would love to hear from you!  Please fill in our volunteer interest form.   We will get back in touch with you in due course to discuss our volunteering initiative further.
