Volunteering

Not all heroes wear capes

Volunteers are hugely important to our small team. From providing the crucial patient perspective, to helping at events and cheering on challenge fundraisers, you can make a difference wherever and whoever you are.

Cheer on our team

Join us at events across the country to help cheer on people running, cycling, walking and more as they raise much needed funds for WMUK.

This volunteering role isn't regular - it depends who is fundraising in your region and how far you're willing to travel. You'll need to be able to set up cheering stations with some simple banners, and have lots of enthusiasm to give our fundraisers the encouragement they need to complete their challenge. You'll need to be prepared to be outdoors for long periods of time in all sorts of weather.

Join the Patient Advisory Group

Our Patient Advisory Group (PAG) is a small group of dedicated volunteers, all of whom have a WM or LPL diagnosis. They provide feedback on the organisation's strategy, information and ensure the patient voice is heard at every step of the charity's work.

Support events

We have a few in-person events throughout the year, such as our annual patient summit. As a small staff team, we're always looking for an extra pair of hands on the day, to help with things like registration and set up.

You'll need to be able to give up a day to help with registration in the morning, and ad hoc tasks throughout the day to support the staff team. No prior experience is needed - just a helpful and friendly attitude!

Other ways

Do you have specific skills or experience that you think could help the charity? Perhaps you have worked in marketing, or are a computer whizz. As a small charity with limited resource we welcome any pro bono help from individuals or companies that can make us more efficient and ensure we are there to better support people living with WM.
