Macmillan Cancer Support are looking for Bedfordshire Action Team members, volunteers who are willing to take on a variety of tasks, from helping out at local events to supporting with collections – raising vital funds and awareness to cheering on our swimmers, runners or cyclists.


Fundraising manager for Bedfordshire, Jessica Wilson said: “Macmillan fully appreciate finding the time to volunteer can be challenging with all the pressures of modern life so as a member of our action team you will be offered a variety of activities and you can pick and chose how much or how little time to give.”


“We have some really interesting activities for volunteers to get involved with, whether you are looking to meet new people, gain new skills or just want to help us raise vital awareness and the money we need to fund our cancer services.”


“Volunteers don’t need to have special skills or experience. They just need to be enthusiastic”.


“We provide training if it’s needed and offer on-going support to ensure all our volunteers get the best possible experience while helping us be there for people affected by cancer”.


We would love for you to join us, if you want to make a difference and join our action team please register your interest atwww.macmillan.org.uk/volunteering 


Macmillan support people with cancer and their families in a number of ways, including by providing specialist nurses who work within the NHS, giving grants to cancer patients with money problems and running a nurse-run support line.


A volunteer Ian said “Whatever time you can give to charity it is very much appreciated. Whether you get involved a little or a lot we're all appreciated the same. We, volunteers, do more than we think we do to help fundraise, bring awareness to the charity and yet it's so rewarding for me".
