      Cheerer Volunteer for RideLondon 100 Bike Ride

      Action on Hearing Loss are looking for volunteer to cheer on our fantastic cyclists at the RideLondon 100 bike ride. In its 5th year, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will see 25,000 amateur cyclists take on a cycling challenge like no other on Sunday 29 July 2018. They will ride through London and Surrey on a similar route to that of the London 2012 Olympic Road Cycling Races. Come along and enjoy the exciting atmosphere, while raising awareness of Action on Hearing Loss.

      Where?

      On Wimbledon Hill Road, Wimbledon (Closest Station is Wimbledon. District line or Overground trains from London Waterloo).

      When?

      Sunday 29 July 2018, 10:30-11am till around 2pm.

      What will you be doing?

      The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then travel through the capital and onto Surrey's stunning country roads and through the Surrey Hills before a spectacular finish on The Mall in central London. As Cheerer Volunteer, you’ll perform the following tasks:

      • join Action on Hearing Loss staff at the cheer point on Wimbledon road
      • make loads of noise to motivate our cyclists as they ride by
      • have fun and soak up the exciting atmosphere!

      Why do we need you?

      As well as an opportunity to take on a personal challenge in completing the ride, participants' involvement will benefit good causes with thousands riding for charity. A record-breaking £12 million+ was raised for charity in 2016 bringing the total raised by riders since 2013 to more than £41 million. So, if you can spare a few hours on the day, come along and cheer on our superhero participants!

      What skills do you need?

      Here’s what we think could be beneficial:

      • lots of enthusiasm
      • big smiles
      • an interest in charity work

      What support will you get?

      We value your time and commitment and want to make sure you are enjoying volunteering with us. Full support will be given on the day from the members of staff running the event. In a recent survey, 92% of our volunteers would recommend Action on Hearing Loss as a good place to volunteer.

      Here’s what our volunteers say:

      "I enjoy meeting people and helping them with their queries. Hearing loss can cause frustration and isolation, leading to loss of confidence.  If I’m able to improve someone’s quality of life by sharing information or raising awareness of how others can help, then that’s very satisfying." RB

      What will you gain?

      Our volunteers receive the following benefits:

      • experience – meeting new people in different situations, building new friendships with other Action on Hearing Loss volunteers
      • fulfilment– knowing that the time you provide will make a real difference to the people we support, and raising deaf awareness throughout society as a whole
      • expenses – all reasonable expenses incurred as a result of your volunteering will be reimbursed according to the Action on Hearing Loss expenses policy
      • opportunity to try other volunteering roles locally with Action on Hearing if available

      Transport
