Hi everyone! This is my first post on charity connect, and, as the image above alludes to, I'm currently volunteering with Cancer Research UK, and have been for the past four years, in an attempt to both change public attitudes towards their own lifestyles and bring in effective health policies in order to help the charity achieve their vision of bringing forward the day when all cancers are cured.  Cancer Research UK's current ambition is to work towards improving cancer survival rates to a point where 3 out of every 4 cancer patients survive 10 years following their initial cancer treatment by the year 2034.  Therefore, I just wanted to let you all know about a volunteering opportunity with Cancer Research UK that some of you might like to sign up to, and you can rest assured that the programme is designed to ease you into the volunteering actions, and is very flexible around studies/work etc.  The volunteer role on offer is known as a 'Cancer Campaigns Ambassador' and it involves political campaigning, predominantly from the comfort of your own home/home constituency.  The only entry criteria are that you need to be able to commit around 5 days per year [sic] to the role (though less or more is fine, it's just so you can attend an event in Parliament once every two years and maybe one or two local events in a given year, on top of writing a letter to and/or meeting up with your local MP once every so often), and you must also be over 18 years of age.  All agreed expenses (be that travel/food/conference hall bookings) can be reimbursed.  Here's the website for more details: http://www.cruk.org.uk/ambassadors and here's the sign up page: http://www.cruk.org.uk/ambassador Thanks all, and I hope to continue to connect with you all over the coming years via this exciting new medium :)
