Volunteer at The Big London Night Walk

The Big London Night Walk 2018 is a Friday night with a difference that helps to highlight the challenges facing people who are homeless. We are looking for volunteers to help us make this an amazing event for up to 350 walkers!

This a great opportunity for The Big Issue Foundation’s supporters to see the capital in a whole new light and hear from Big Issue vendors. Required roles include welcoming participants to rest stop on the route and walking the route with our solo walkers.

Starting off in central London at Shoreditch Town Hall, the unique route through the capital 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 on this 13 mile route.

We are looking for up to 90 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 2nd March – Saturday 3rd March. You will be able to choose your shift slot closer to the event.
