Starting off in central London at St John’s Church, Waterloo (home to one of The Big Issue magazine distribution points), the unique route through central London will take you on a tour of the iconic sites at night. Walkers will visit locations connected with our important work, and get the opportunity to hear personal insights from Big Issue vendors along the way.
We are looking for up to 70 fabulous volunteers to help us make this an amazing experience for all our walkers. We would welcome teams of volunteers as well as individual helpers. We need people to take on the following roles helping out on different shifts between 6pm and 6am from Friday 11th March – Saturday 12th March.
Could you help us by:
• Registering participants on arrival
• Talking to participants about the challenge, their training, and what has motivated them to take part before the start?
• Welcoming walkers to the rest stops, serving refreshments, listening to how their walk is going and encouraging them along their way?
• Celebrating the finishing line with walkers when they finally make it back to base?
In particular, we are looking for volunteers who are available to help from 9.30pm-12pm at Beaconsfield, Vauxhall.
Last year’s volunteers had great fun and told us they found it a really worthwhile experience:
“Charged by everyone’s excitement and passion about the cause, it filled me with a great sense of achievement by volunteering to meet and greet the participants of The Big London Night Walk. Look forward to meeting new people and connecting with everyone next year!”
