Volunteer Marshals

We are looking for volunteers to help us marshal the Starlight Strut – to guide our walkers in the right direction and cheer them on their way! Marshals will work in pairs at strategic points along the route and play a vital role on the night.

It’s so rewarding – we help those who are putting themselves out walking through the night and raising money at the same time. We can all help as partners, relatives and friends just as much as those walking. It’s great fun and the event couldn’t happen without us. 

Interested? Find out more about the role and volunteer your time through the links below:
