They are able to reimburse travel expenses should anyone need this and provide refreshments to volunteers at events.  People who help out are also invited to attend one of the regular lab tours at St James’ Hospital in Leeds to get a first-hand insight into the work being done by CRUK funded scientists on new treatments for cancer.​

The Major Series

The Major Series is operated by British Military Fitness and is a series of 5 – 10km outdoor obstacle & mud race events held each spring and autumn.

They are desperately in need of volunteers to help out with such activities as assisting with event registration, stewarding, handing out water and medals and organising kit storage. It will involve working outdoors, whatever the weather.

Anyone interested in volunteering should email stating:

  • They would like to volunteer at the North event
  • Their full name
  • Mobile number
  • Email address

Out and About

Statistics show that many of us, whatever our age, often feel isolated or disconnected
from people around us. Loneliness can have a devastating impact on older people’s
happiness and physical health.

Can you give some time to help deliver the right information and support to get those at risk of loneliness out and about?
