As a charity, the Perkins relies on the help of volunteers and supporters to make our work possible. If you’re passionate about making a difference, and want to contribute to improving community health, consider volunteering at one of the Perkins upcoming fundraising events!

Throughout the year, we need a variety of volunteers so there is sure to be a role suited to your needs and availability. Whether you’re interested in volunteering at physical events or helping the team within the office, how much of your time you choose to give is entirely up to you.

If you’d like to assist the Perkins in advancing medical research, express your interest in becoming a Perkins volunteer today!

*Unfortunately, we cannot accept volunteers in the research labs.


The Perkins has two major events that raise funds for cancer research – the New Town Toyota Walk for Women’s Cancer and the MACA Cancer 200 Ride for Research.

Both events are not possible without the generous help of volunteers who assist the Perkins in the following ways:

  • Administrative support and participant correspondence in the lead up to the event and following event days.
  • Pack packing and logistical support prior to the event
  • Event day support handing out food, directing traffic, setting up tents or simply cheering on participants.

If you are interested in volunteering at these Perkins events, please click the links below or send us an email and we’ll get in touch.


There are currently no vacancies for Administrative Volunteering roles at the Perkins.

If you are interested in volunteering in an administrative capacity, please check back at a later date or express your interest to provide office support for one of the fundraising events listed above.
