What will I be doing?

  • Volunteer to support #TeamStroke in the Virgin Money London Marathon, meet new people and help us rebuild lives together.
  • As a photography volunteer, you are there to capture the moment our fabulous runners pass our cheer points.
  • Not only will you be capturing a memory for life for the person running, but your photos will be used across our organisation to raise awareness of stroke and encourage others to join #TeamStroke in our future events.

What impact will this have?

  • There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK and more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year - that's around one stroke every five minutes.
  • With your support, we can provide peer-to-peer support to stroke survivors, provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research to find better treatments.
  • By volunteering with us, you can change the lives of those affected by stroke, and it could change your life too.
  • You will gain a rewarding experience in supporting the UK's leading stroke charity.
