One-Off Events Volunteering

Regular volunteering might not be suitable for everybody. That’s why we have super flexible and short-term events volunteering opportunities that can fit your busy schedule or will serve as a first step in the world of volunteering for RSBC.

Volunteer short-term

Sometimes you just don’t have enough time or energy to make a full-time or a regular commitment, but you’d still like to get involved and make a difference to the lives of blind children and their families.

There is a way to volunteer for us or support us and our work during live events on specific dates (government rules permitting).

We provide

  • Flexibility – volunteer the amount of time you want or can
  • Support – a dedicated member of the volunteering team to answer any questions you might have
  • Opportunity to meet new people – meet like-minded volunteers and expand your networks
  • Learning opportunities – learn about sight loss and our work

What does the role involve?

Join us for a one-off event and become a part of our community.

These include:

  • Concerts, such as our Christmas Carol Concert
  • Challenge events, such as the London Marathon

At challenge events, being a cheer point volunteer supports RSBC runners and shows them the appreciation they deserve. Please note that cheer point volunteer opportunities are face-to-face opportunities and will only take place in line with government advice on COVID-19.

Current opportunities

Be a part of #TeamRSBC and cheer on our 41 London Marathon runners.

Have fun and meet like-minded people when you join us on Sunday 3rd October.

All we need you to bring is bags of enthusiasm and your best cheering voice. We want the best atmosphere for our runners who have raised a lot of money to support the work we do.

Our two cheer points on the London Marathon route will be on the North Colonnade in Canary Wharf and on Lower Thames Street at Monument.

You can volunteer as many hours as you’d like between 10 am and 5 pm.

And why not bring your family, friends or work colleagues along for the fun?

We’ll provide a full event briefing and you’ll be supported throughout the day by the RSBC team. We’ll also have the important stuff: drinks and snacks! (and everything you need to cheer)

Travel costs up to £10 can be reimbursed and no background checks are needed for this role.
