Volunteering

Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of grassroot and mass participation sport; as a volunteer in Surrey you'll play a key part in the staging of an event in your area. By being part of a team that really makes things happen, you'll be adding to others' enjoyment and gaining practical experience that future employers will value.

Receive information about volunteering opportunities, by telling us what interests you about volunteering.

"To people who are thinking about volunteering I would say go for it! It's such a great thing to do and the feeling you get from it is amazing! I made some great friends and I would recommend volunteering to anyone."
Nikki
