MARIE Curie, the UK’s leading charity for people living with a terminal illness, is appealing for volunteers in Crompton, Royton and Shaw to help with the charity’s annual appeals.
The charity is looking for people to help place and manage collection tins in businesses, shops, bars and restaurants as well people to help host Christmas collections and Great Daffodil Appeal collections in March next year.
The money raised from local collections means Marie Curie Nurses can continue to provide vital one-to-one nursing care and support.
The funds also help run Marie Curie’s nine UK hospices, as well its free information and support line which offers practical and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.
Julie Peters, Marie Curie Community said: “Volunteering is good fun and it’s a great way to meet new people in your local area, while at the same time doing something worthwhile.
“We are looking for individuals who are organised and have good communication skills to help us in our mission to make sure more dying people get the care and support they need at the end of their lives.”
If you are interested in volunteering for Marie Curie and would like to find out more information about how you can help, contact Julie Peters, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser, on 0161 255 2809 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
