Ambassador Programme

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation ambassadors play a pivotal role in our charity. From raising awareness of lung cancer to providing peer support to those facing a diagnosis, helping us shape our information and acting as the face of the charity in your local area, we need charity ambassadors to help us continue to improve the lives of everyone affected by lung cancer.

What is a Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation ambassador?

Charity ambassadors are representatives of Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. You will have the opportunity to use your experience of lung cancer as well as personal expertise and skills to raise awareness of lung cancer and the charity, as well as providing support to others affected by the disease.

Roles and responsibilities

There are many different ways an ambassador can support the charity. You can let us know what you are most interested in and we will then get in touch when a suitable opportunity arises. There is no pressure to commit to every aspect of the roles, nor will you be expected to take on every opportunity that is offered.

Sharing your own experience of lung cancer can help us raise vital awareness of symptoms and encourage others to take action.
As part of our Lung Cancer Connect service, we match ambassadors with people who are facing a similar diagnosis.
Sharing your experience with the media can help us raise the profile of lung cancer on a national scale and reach more people.
Join us as we get out into the communities that need us the most to raise awareness of lung cancer, its symptoms and the charity.
Our readership panel help to ensure our information is clear and easy to understand.
From our information days to parliamentary events, you can share your experiences to provide reassurance and raise awareness.
From our exciting new running events to family favourite Spooky Welly Walk, you can ensure events run smoothly and that a good time is had by all.
Gratefully receive kind donations from our incredible supporters on our behalf and explain how this money will help those affected by lung cancer.
Income from our shops allows us to continue our vital work and you can be part of it by volunteering your time in one of our shops across the North West.
Spread our key messages far and wide as a Roy Castle Ambassador. Join our campaigns, distribute information in your local area or just shout from the rooftops!
