    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Volunteer at MoonWalk Scotland Saturday 11th June 2022 from Holyrood Park, Edinburgh! Help thousands of participants complete an overnight walk-a-thon in decorated bras to raise money for breast cancer research!

    Spend Saturday evening in MoonWalk City, by joining one of 20 event crew teams, from 6pm through midnight - from registering baggage to handing out volunteer uniforms!

    If you like nightlife, marshalling or giving out water whilst surrounded by Edinburgh's famous landmarks could be for you! Start times vary between 9pm and 1am, depending on your role, and last about 8 hours. We can also offer site-based roles at MoonWalk City throughout the night.

    On Sunday 12th June, the early morning crew takes over, starting between 5 - 6am until midday. This truly is the most testing time for our walkers. Your kind and motivating words could be all that is needed to get someone across that finish line!
