Marie Curie is appealing for enthusiastic and friendly local volunteers to help manage the charity’s collection boxes across Yorkshire by organising and growing the collection tin campaign.
The local Marie Curie fundraising team is seeking Collection Box Co-ordinators to help look after boxes that are on display in shops, newsagents, chemists, pubs and doctors’ surgeries and also place collection boxes in new locations.
Liz Howlett, Yorkshire Fundraising Manager said “As a volunteer Collection Box Co-ordinator you’ll help to raise vital money and awareness for Marie Curie. We’re appealing for people who can look after collection boxes in the local community, count and bank the monies and also spot new opportunities to place boxes in the community. It’s a great way to get involved with Marie Curie and the money raised from the boxes will help Marie Curie to provide vital care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families, when they need it most.”
Liz added: “Marie Curie relies heavily on our volunteers, without whom we would not be able to continue providing care in the local community. Supporting the charity gives people the opportunity to gain unforgettable experiences, immerse themselves in a new culture, face fresh challenges and obtain new skills while doing something fulfilling.”
Whether you’re a seasoned fundraiser or a newcomer looking to get involved for the first time, the local Marie Curie fundraising office would love to hear from you.
To become a Marie Curie Collection Box Co-ordinator you need to be aged 16 or over.
