Join us at a beautiful location in the English countryside and help us support our Pink Ribbon Walkers with every step. You don’t need any experience or special skills, just a good team spirit and plenty of enthusiasm.
This event wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers, and their support will help us to continue to be there for everyone affected by breast cancer, providing support for today and hope for the future.
At the 2021 Pink Ribbon Walk events in Bakewell, Peak District and Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, the walkers will take part across 10 and 20-mile walks. You will be part of the 100+ strong on-the-day team made up of Breast Cancer Now staff, local guides and medics, and local cadet forces.
As a volunteer you’ll play an integral role in the smooth-running of the event.
Roles include Information and gift team, Registration team, Main Marquee team, Finish Line team, Car Park team, Venue Marshal team, Route Marshal, Driver, and Snack Station team
‘It’s just the best day! A fabulous time which is filled with laughter, love and hope.’
– Mary, Pink Ribbon Walk Volunteer 2019
