Event Volunteers Needed

Local children's hospice Helen and Douglas House are looking for volunteers to help run three upcoming events.

Helen and Douglas House are on the lookout for volunteers to support them at a range of events in the coming months.

These fundraising events are a major part of generating income to be able to continue to support terminally ill babies and children, and we are asking our grassroots football community in Oxfordshire to lend their support.

Generally, event volunteers’ shifts are between 3-6 hours in length, but it can be flexible to meet your needs.

Bubble Rush

Date and Time: Sunday 17th September (Morning and early afternoon)

Route marshals, bubble station marshals and finish line helpers too. Lots of chances to help out at whatever level you are able to commit.

Oxford Half Marathon
