The Pink Place Cancer Charity Basingstoke

Volunteering

For The Pink Place

Have You Ever Thought About Volunteering?

At the very centre of our charity are the generous volunteers who give up their time to help us to deliver our services. Without them, we simply couldn’t help as many people as we do.

Of course, like any charity, we could also do with more support.

That’s why we invite you to get in touch to discuss ways in which you could support us and help people in the community living with a cancer diagnosis.

Your help and support will bring comfort at a time when people need it most.

So, if you are over 18 and want to help The Pink Place by volunteering in some sort of capacity, why not check out help we need below. There really are so many ways you could help, possibly more than you could imagine.

“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”
