Crowd cheering at an NSPCC cheer point

Volunteer at one of our events

Volunteering at one of our events is a great way of supporting our work and other NSPCC supporters while we raise money.


Give your time and talents at one of our events

All the fun of a marathon without the training! Sound like something you’d be interested in? Volunteering at an event is a great way of supporting our work and other NSPCC supporters while we raise money.

The great thing about volunteering at an event is that there are so many different things to do on the day. Whether you have a particular interest or are keen to put your skills to use for a good cause, there are a variety of ways to get stuck in.

Join us at one of our cheer points

Our cheerers make a massive difference, keeping our runners and triathletes going to the finish line. Shout, wave and clap to let them know we’re with them all the way!

"The NSPCC cheering points ... really gave you a lift and kept you going."

Cheer points are set up around the event course – guaranteeing a great view, and making it easy for participants to spot us. Email to get involved!

Take photos


Instagram fanatics, this is for you! We have so much fun at our events, so it’s a shame if we can’t capture all the memorable moments.

If you have a camera and some time to spare, we’d love for you to join us on the day.

Set up stands and stalls

Help us get set up on the big day. Making sure people know where to find us at an event is important.

To help us get spotted amongst the sea of supporters and eventers, we sometimes set up a stand or stall. Stands and stalls are used at conferences, event days and festivals.

Provide refreshments


Running a marathon is thirsty work! Lend us a hand keeping our eventers refreshed throughout the day.

Some events also provide an area for eventers and their families to relax at the end. We're on hand there too, providing snacks and drinks.
