About the Organisation

Here at The Kirkwood we provide a range of care and support aimed at improving the lives of people affected by any life-limiting illness in our local communities.  We are extremely fortunate to have the support and commitment of over 800 dedicated volunteers who work alongside staff in a variety of roles and departments.  The Kirkwood Team work tirelessly to support people to improve their quality of life; remain as independent as possible; and maintain their dignity until the very end.  Families and loved-ones are also supported during the illness and in bereavement.

We couldn’t do what we do without our loyal volunteers! 

Role Description

The Kirkwood Memory Walk is our biggest fundraising event of the year, with almost 1000 people coming together to walk in memory of loved ones and raise money for The Kirkwood. We need around 100 volunteers in total to make this event happen and have lots of roles available, including; registration, marshalling, selling merchandise, glitter face painting.

The event will be held on Saturday, June 22nd 2024 at the John Smith's Stadium. Volunteers are requested to arrive by 7pm.

The last walker usually returns around 1am. Some roles involve waiting for the last walker to pass their marshal point or return to the stadium, other roles are free to leave once walkers have set off (just after 10pm)

A full briefing is given on the night and a member of our team will be in touch with you prior to the event with all of the information you need to know.
