Night to Remember

By volunteering for this iconic Worthing event you’ll feel amazing to be supporting your local community and making a real difference.

Night to Remember holds such a special place in the hearts of so many, and we couldn’t put on the event without the support of our amazing volunteers who really help bring Night to Remember to life!

You could be joining our set up crew, getting everything ready for when our first walkers arrive and being the first smiley face people see when they walk through the door. Or guide the walkers along their path; keeping spirits high with cheers of encouragement, sharing a laugh along the way, and making sure that everyone is kept safe throughout the night. We’re also on the look out for car parking assistants, break-down help at the end of the night, and many more! You can find a full list at the bottom of this page.

No previous experience needed, all we ask for is a big smile and a willingness to get involved.
