With just under three weeks to go before thousands of people gather at the Royal Festival Hall to pound the streets of London in Walk for Life 2003, leading HIV/AIDS charity Crusaid is looking for volunteers to make sure the day runs smoothly.
Nigel Seymour, Sponsored Events Manager at Crusaid, said: "Walk for Life is the biggest annual fundraiser for HIV and AIDS – and putting it together is a massive job. With your help, we can make this year's Walk better than ever. Whether you have just one spare hour or loads of free time on your hands between now and June 22nd, we can find a way that you can help fight HIV and AIDS.
"We're determined to make a real difference to the lives of people affected by HIV and AIDS – the help we get from volunteers on the day is absolutely vital."
So, what can you do?
• Help with stuffing Walk for Life 2003 'goodie bags'
• Help with the creation of the thousands of walker passes
As hundreds of last-minute walkers register, the Walk office needs help answering the phones and sending out Walk for Life packs to supporters.
Crusaid is the national fundraiser and leading independent grant maker for HIV and AIDS in the UK. With more people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in the UK and world-wide than ever before, the calls for our help have never been greater.
