Volunteering at Events

LGBT Foundation has a strong presence at many LGBT-focussed events such as Manchester Pride, IDAHOBIT, Sparkle, Sugar and Spice and World AIDS Day. We have a variety of roles at these events. These can include volunteering duties such as stewarding, taking part in the parade, fundraising, data entry, photography and lots more.

Here is where you will find up and coming events for you to take part in, so check this page regularly to see if there is anything you like!
