Enthusiastic volunteers needed for cheer stations at the London Marathon

Bankside and You Opportunity
Join the Prostate Cancer Research Centre and cheer on their fantastic runners this year. Register your interest by 14 April

Locally based charity the Prostate Cancer Research Centre is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join their cheer stations to help them make the London Marathon impossible to forget for their runners this year who will be aiming to raise over £130,000 for PCRC. As a cheer point volunteer, you will be at the heart of the action. Fundraisers have trained hard for their race, but will still need lots of encouragement to make it to the finish line. PCRC think they deserve the loudest cheers for all the effort they’ve put into raising money for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre, and need help to achieve this.

As part of the PCRC Volunteering Team, they will provide you with all the information you need about the day, your very own PCRC t-shirt, wristband and cheering sticks. All you need to do is bring your voice, energy and enthusiasm! sak [at] (subject: Cheer%20volunteer%20for%20PCRC) (Contact us to get involved)

  • You should be happy and able to be outside, whatever the weather, and be prepared and able to spend a number of hours on your feet.

About Prostate Cancer Research Centre

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. Over 11,000 men die every year in the UK, and the number increases every year. Advanced prostate cancer is treated with hormone therapy, developed in the 1940s. Hormone therapy is still the primary and most effective treatment for advanced prostate cancer. Consequently, survival rates have improved little over the last 70 years. New and more effective therapy is urgently needed. PCRC are dedicated to improving the survival of the next generation of men and better treatment can only come through research.
