What support will I be given?

  • You’ll be provided with a brief when volunteering
  • Support from Tenovus Cancer Care member of staff
  • Water will be available for you on the day – but we’d advice bringing along some snacks in case you get hungry!

  • You’ll be given a Tenovus Cancer Care t-shirt to wear on the day
