The Cancer Council QLD Redlands Branch - Event Support Volunteer

Event Support Volunteer

 

Cancer Council volunteers help to raise funds, among other activities, which go towards helping people whose lives have been affected by cancer. This means funding world-class research, prevention and support services across Australia, as well as helping patients both today and in the future. 

The Cancer Council Queensland Redlands Branch are seeking several volunteers who can join their events team and help support upcoming events in the Redlands area. This includes fundraising opportunities such as sausage sizzles, info stalls in shopping centres, helping out at morning teas and more!

They would like volunteers who have flexible availability and can attend events when opportunities arise. Volunteers don't need any particular skills, training will be provided. 

The Events Team volunteer tasks include:

  • Participating on fundraising stalls and community events
  • The Redlands Branch finds itself in a position where its event volunteers are maturing.

  • talking with the general public, selling items for fundraising

Volunteer attributes:

  • good people skills - being able to engage with people from all walks of life
  • assisting in setting and packing up stalls
  • learning about the organisation and its mission
