Putting our region's cancer needs first

Give Your Time

Giving some of your free time to North West Cancer Research will make a real difference to cancer in our region... and you’ll have plenty of fun at the same time!

volunteer at event

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and develop confidence. No matter how much or little time you have to give, we can find the perfect option to suit you.



From concerts to gala dinners, our events take place all over the North West and Wales so there’s sure to be one that’s right for you.

You may be helping us to set up the event, selling Christmas cards or cheering on our supporters in a race – whatever the activity you’ll be making a massive difference. 


Fundraising Committees 

An amazing £200,000 is raised every year by our wonderful fundraising Committees. They are the lifeblood of North West Cancer Research and play a vital part in our mission to create a cancer-free future. 

Our Committees really are heroes and each has a totally unique approach to how they choose to support North West Cancer Research. Some Committees hold a number of events throughout the year, while others choose to put all their efforts toward one big event. 


Collection tins and boxes 

Volunteers also play a key role in managing North West Cancer Research's many collection tins, which, thanks to the public's generosity, help fund crucial cancer research in the North West and North Wales. 

By simply agreeing to have a collection tin in your workplace, home, or shop, you are directly supporting the scientists making real advances in the fight for a cancer-free future.
