Join our event committees

Volunteers play a key role in supporting our Major Events team to organise three of Back Up’s biggest annual fundraising events: the City Dinner, the Back Up Ball, and the Front Row Event.

Each event raises valuable funds to help Back Up continue its work transforming the lives of people affected by spinal cord injury and all three have a committee of volunteers which meet regularly throughout the year.

Committee members come from all kinds of backgrounds and bring with them a unique and valuable contribution to the planning and organising of the event. This can involve:

  • Sourcing auction prizes
  • Networking with potential supporters and guests
  • Helping decide the theme and focus of each event
  • Advising on the choice of entertainment and speaker

If you love sharing ideas, working as part of a team, are highly organised and would like to support Back Up in its values and aims, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

“All the staff members are so passionate about what they do and it doesn’t actually feel like I’m working. The event runs so smoothly and this is down to the fantastic team of staff and volunteers that look after everyone on the night and, of course, the work the committee has put in before the event. I have made some great friends at Back Up and I genuinely look forward to coming to the office to help out.”
