Volunteering for GUTS
We really do value the many individuals, businesses and organisations that support GUTS through volunteering.
Whether you have one hour or 20 hours to spare, we will be pleased to make good use of it so please do get in touch.
Street and supermarket collections
Street and supermarket collections help raise funds for GUTS but they also help to spread the word about the charity and about bowel cancer too. If you can spare an hour or two and live within reasonable distance of Guildford, Haslemere, Cranleigh or Godalming please do get in touch or keep an eye on our ‘events’ pages where we publish details of forthcoming collections.
Our next street collection will be on Saturday 28 July on Guildford High Street. FIND OUT MORE
Bake us a cake!
Every year we run the teashop for the Albury Park NGS open garden (usually towards the end of March) and the delicious homemade cakes we serve are all donated by volunteer bakers. If you enjoy baking and would like to make a contribution we would love to hear from you.
There are many ways you can help us raise awareness about the charity and about bowel cancer prevention and early diagnosis – it could be by spreading the word to clubs and societies through talks, using social media to help us capture younger audiences or by attending events on our behalf. Maybe you have your own ideas – please do get in touch, we would love to hear them!
Be a race marshal
Every spring our annual race, Bolt Round the Holt, takes place at Alice Holt Forest near Farnham, and we are always on the look out for volunteers to help marshal the event. Marshals help with a range of activities such as car park direction, manning water stations, helping with registration and directing runners. Some of the roles will involve walking around the course so if you have any mobility problems let us know so that we can allocate something in an area that’s reasonably flat and easy to reach. It’s an early start – volunteers arrive from around 7am but most people will be finished by early afternoon. Obviously the weather in England in March/April is completely unpredictable so dress appropriately and in layers in case it changes during the day. Stout walking shoes or boots are recommended.
