Your chance to volunteer at one of the biggest athletic competitions in the country.

Right To Play is a global organisation that uses sport and play to educate and empower children who are facing great adversity. We help children build essential life skills to enable them to overcome the effects of poverty, disease and war.

Right To Play is the charity partner of the prestigious London Anniversary Games this July. The Games will take place in the spectacular Olympic Stadium and is the final IAAF Diamond League competition before the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and Paralympic Games. World record holder Usain Bolt will be on the track along with many of the world’s best athletes and Paralympic stars including David Weir, Jonnie Peacock and Hannah Cockroft.

We are looking for volunteers for Friday 22nd July and Saturday 23rd July, to help promote Right To Play at the Games and maximise the fundraising opportunities. Whether you would like to come on your own or with a group of friends, please get in touch to register your interest.

Volunteers will receive a Right To Play t-shirt and will have access to the concourse in the stadium. We will make every effort to give you a chance to view the competition between shifts, including the 100m final on Friday.
