Walk to Remember with Marie Curie

Thousands will be walking in memory of a loved one, or simply coming along to support Marie Curie at Sandringham for their event ‘Walk to Remember’. It is a 10km walk across beautiful countryside followed by a picnic, with live entertainment and fireworks, closing with a speech from a Marie Curie Nurse.

Marie Curie are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with their Walk to Remember event at Sandringham, on August 15th.

The different areas that volunteers are required for are:

  • Registration – helping people register and getting their kit i.e. T-shirt. This is based inside a gazebo and seating is available.
  • Car Park Marshal – helping people to park before going onsite. A hi-vis jacket will be provided. The volunteer will need to work with others in the team to ensure the participants park safely but use the most of the space available.
  • Glow stick stall – taking donations for glow sticks to be used later in the evening.
  • T-shirt stand – Ensuring that participants have their correct t-shirt. With the possibly of selling/taking donations for non-participants who want a t-shirt.
  • Marshals – This role is incredibly important! We need volunteers to man points along the course to give participants directions and cheer them along. Some of these positions may be at the water stations along the route. You may leave your position once the backmarker relieves you. You are free to go back to site and enjoy the rest of the evening or you may go home.

All volunteers will need to be on site from about 4pm and the latest you will leave is 10.30.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Fleet – Community Fundraiser for Norfolk on 01603 787823.
