We have lots of exciting events coming up and are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join us.

Movie Night

The public have decided and we’re thrilled to announce the movie we’ll be showing is The Greatest Showman!

Held at our Centre, we’re looking for 6 volunteers to take tickets at the door, help promote the raffle, serve behind the bar, and sell popcorn and hotdogs before the movie and at the break.

During the movie you’re welcome to join the audience and belt out the classics to your heart’s content.

Date: Friday 3rd August 2018

Time: 6pm – 10:30pm

Location: Cancer Support Scotland Drop-in Centre, Gartnavel Campus Glasgow G12 0ZE

 

Let’s Rock Cancer!

Our usual Battle of the Bands – revamped! This year we’re mixing things up with a new venue, panel and name to bring some of Glasgow’s best unsigned bands together for a night of music and prizes.

For this one we’re looking for a supersized team of 18 volunteers! 15 volunteers will be responsible for hosting 2 tables each – welcoming guests to the event, explaining the timings of the night and how the games, raffle and auction will work. Three volunteers will be looking after the prizes, explaining to guests what each prize involves, its minimum value and any restrictions, as well as helping the staff with cash-handling.

Dinner is provided and once the auction is over you’re free to spend the rest of the night watching the bands and entertainment.

Date: Thursday 20th September

Time: 5:30pm – 11pm

Location: Radisson Blu Hotel, 301 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8DL

 

Great Scottish Run

Easier than actually signing up to the 10K or Half Marathon – sign up to stand and cheer the people who did! It takes a tremendous amount of training and commitment to take on either, so join one of our 2 cheer squads to thank those who are running on behalf of Cancer Support Scotland.

Date: 30th September 2018

Time: 9:30am – 12:30pm

Location: Glasgow Green/Squinty Bridge

 

Ladies Lunch

Our most glamorous event: 200 ladies get together at the Radisson on a Sunday afternoon full of Prosecco and dancing!

For this event to run smoothly we need a team of 12 bubbly ladies to chat to the guests, encourage people to take part in the raffle, explain what is included in auction prizes and support the fundraising team. Lunch is provided and any free time can be spent enjoying the entertainment!

Date: Sunday 28th October 2018

Time: 11:15am – 4:15pm

Location: Radisson Blu Hotel, 301 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8DL
