At the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) we appreciate the value that volunteers can bring to our organisation.

We couldn't run without the help and support of our volunteers. Individuals volunteer for CHECT for a variety of reasons but they all achieve the same thing; they make a difference. They help us deliver key aims:

To provide information and support to individuals and families with retinoblastoma (Rb)

To raise awareness of retinoblastoma

To raise funds for research

To influence professional bodies to ensure optimum service for retinoblastoma patients

Everyone who raises funds for CHECT by organising an event, placing a collection tin in a local business or taking part in a sponsored event is a volunteer fundraiser.

Volunteer to raise funds

If you've distributed leaflets at your child's school, raised awareness by setting up a stand in your community or contacted your local newspaper you are a volunteer awareness raiser.

Our voluntary roles are varied, and can be done in different locations.  Our volunteers may work at our London office, or at events around the country or from home.
