We are looking for some enthusastic and friendsly people to come along to two events that are taking place on 9th October and give up their time, volunteering with the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
Perkins Great Eastern Run - Peterborough
For the first time, this year we are the partner charity for the Perkins Great Eastern Run, a half marathon that takes place in Peterborough on 9th october.
We are looking for volunteers to help with baggage at the event and to marshal the final mile as well as supporting all the runners including those that are raising money for the Appeal.
One of the fastest growing half marathons in the UK this is set to be a great day with great meaning to the Tomlinson family, who spent time living in Peterborough.
You will be needed between 7.30am and 2pm approximately and some costs can be covered if traveling to the event etc.
Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon & 10 Mile Run
Starting and finishing at York University 2016 marks the 4th Yorkshire Marathon and the second 10 Mile Run. We are expecting over 300 runners to take part in the event with the Appeal team and we are looking for volunteers to help out at our post race reception and at our cheer point out on course.
Our post race reception is located in the Central Hall building within the York University Campus, we will be welcoming runners back with entertainment refreshments, massage and more. You would be needed between 7am and pm Approximately.
Our cheer point will be located around mile 17 of the 26.2 mile run outside Machine Automatic Robotic System/Car Spa on Stamford Bridge Road and we need as many people as possible to come along and make us the loudest cheer point on course. Having cheers on the course makse a huge difference to the runners and helps us to give that extra bit of support to everyone who is raising money to support childrens and cancer charities. You will be needed between 9am and 4pm Approximately.
