Every year the Events & Active Sunderland Team manage and deliver a broad range of sporting, and cultural events across the City of Sunderland. These Events include the Active Sunderland BIG Walk, Bike Ride and Run, the Remembrance Parade, 6 Local Area Sports Festivals, and the Sunderland International Air Show. Further information can be found at See It Do It - What's On.
In addition to the annual programme of events, The Events & Active Sunderland Team also deliver the Wellness Walking Programme which is a series of weekly led walks by a team of Volunteer Walk Leaders.
In recent years the Events & Active Sunderland team has developed a significant pool of volunteers which has continued to grow year on year. In 2019 over 150 individual volunteers assisted with the delivery of the BIG Events, Area Sports festivals and the Wellness Walking Programme. Without our Event Makers and Volunteer Walk Leaders, these events and walks would be extremely difficult to stage and would not be as successful as they are.
See our Volunteering page for further information on current volunteering roles and how to apply.
