Non-League Day Volunteer Leaders
Non-League Day is an annual part of our football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, charities and - most importantly - the non-league clubs and the fans who turn up on the day.
Non-League Day gives clubs a way to promote the importance of affordable, volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
Many non-league clubs are almost exclusively volunteer run, with money taken at the turnstiles often funding thriving youth set-ups, projects and facilities which are of benefit to the whole community.
On 10 October, this money collected from matches will be going towards Prostate Cancer UK.
How you can help
We need lead volunteers at the match days on 10 October to liaise with volunteers then and there, letting them know where to collect, briefing them before the collection and supervising them during it.
- Oversee the collection of money for an hour before kick off, and look after the money until you’re able to bank it
- Carry out promotional roles on the day such as Guest of Honour on the pitch and handing over the match ball to the referee – this will be by agreement with the club before the event
- Check that Prostate Cancer UK posters and branding are up around the bar, toilets and ground
- Help recruit friends and family to help with the collection
- Promote the Non-League Day pledge (prostatecanceruk.org/pledge) to people in the build up to the match
- Seek out a local pub near the ground ahead of the match and let the community fundraising team know, so that we can approach them about becoming a Men United Arms for the day
What you will get from volunteering
- Event management and fundraising experience
- An opportunity to work with and meet like-minded volunteers
- The opportunity to see a local Non-league day in action
- A way to help spread awareness of prostate cancer
