BHF Events Volunteer

Our volunteers play a vital role in making events a massive success and we have opportunities to suit everyone:

  • Handing out medals and goody bags
  • Helping with on the day administration
  • Managing a refreshment point
  • Marshalling a route
  • Being part of a cheer squad
  • Promoting events locally

Please remember that it does not matter if you can attend the events for three hours or the whole day – every minute you give will help us in the fight for every heartbeat.

We want you to enjoy your volunteering experience and have fun!

Our participants will rely on you for motivation so all we ask is that you are enthusiastic and that you enjoy your time at the event.
