Become an Orchid Ambassador and you will be helping to put the issue of male specific cancer on the map in your local area!

If you have a few hours spare a week then being an Ambassador might be just for you. The role can involve any of the following activities;

Key Tasks

  • Organising fundraising activities and events in your local community.
  • Distributing and collecting Orchid collection tins and awareness materials throughout local businesses, community centres, shops and pubs in your area.

  • Organising bucket collections.
  • Attending local cheque presentations on behalf of Orchid and meeting supporters face to face.

Why not even encourage your friends, family and other members of the community to join you to form a group of enthusiastic Orchid supporters. After all, more hands make light work.
