What to expect

Our events can't happen without you, but don't just take our word for it - hear about it directly from our volunteers!

Volunteer roles

You will either be based on the walk routes, or in the event site. In both roles, you will meet lots of walkers and soak up the amazing event atmosphere!

Event site volunteers

Volunteers who are based in the event site can take on a variety of different roles throughout the day, including:

  • selling merchandise
  • answering walker questions
  • helping keep the event area clean, tidy and safe
  • signposting walkers to the correct areas
  • handing out medals at the finish line!

Route volunteers

Route volunteers are absolutely essential to giving walkers a brilliant experience at the event. People in these roles will be positioned at key points on the walk route and will:

  • Ensure walkers are heading in the right direction.
  • Motivate and cheer people on as they complete their Memory Walk.
  • Monitor and report back on route progress to the event team.
  • Walk at the back of walkers to ensure everyone finishes the walk safely.

What we provide

Volunteering at Memory Walk also comes with some exclusive perks:

  • A volunteer t-shirt.
  • A  hi-viz vest if you are on the route.
  • A lanyard with all the safety information you need.
  • A full event briefing about the event and your volunteer role.
  • A hot drink, snack and bottle of water.
