All sorts of people volunteer for many different reasons, but one thing that unites them all is that they find it challenging, rewarding and varied.
Volunteering can add a great deal to your life and the lives of those for whom you volunteer. It offers you a chance to become involved in a project or with an organisation you really care about as well as an opportunity to meet new and like-minded people. It also gives you the chance to try out something different to your 'everyday' job, which may lead on to new career options.
Our races take place on the first Saturday of every month at 9:00 am at each of our locations. There is a team responsible for each event, consisting of a Race Director and his/her helpers. There is a variety of roles and you can have a go at any that you feel comfortable with. We don't expect anyone to volunteer week in/week out. Just get in touch with us and we'll add you to our database, and you can volunteer at any event that suits you. Many of our volunteers are parents of children who run at our events. It's a great way to help the charity and the kids at the same time.
Office Volunteers Alternatively you can join our busy office team, helping us to expand our activities, recruiting volunteers, promoting our events, contacting sponsors, or keeping our beautiful website spick and span and up to date.
There's always loads going on so if you're thinking of getting involved or want to help out in any way, then just drop us a line at
or call us at 07711349592!
We're looking forward to hearing from you!
Kids Run Free receives regular donations from Raceways CIC, a non-profit Sports Event Management. We have also been successful in obtaining grants to set up new events. However, it is really difficult to get grants to fund your running costs - the mundane stuff like printers, computers, office equipment, rent and utility bills. This is where donations - of money or equipment - can really help.
We rely on fundraising, membership and grants to carry out our valuable work. From organising your own cake sale to taking part in a sponsored walks, there are lots of ways in which you can help to raise money to support Kids Run Free.
Other ways to fundraise:
The Giving Machine - raise money through shopping online, searching online or selling online.
Virgin Giving - join an organised run or challenge, and have fun fundraising.
