Marie Curie Appeals for Key Volunteers

Marie Curie is appealing for volunteers in the Boroughbidge area to take on key roles within a new fundraising committee that will meet on a monthly basis and cover the YO51 area. The roles that the charity is specifically looking for are a Community Ambassador, Event Coordinator and Event Helpers.

Community ambassadors would need to give up a few evenings every other month to go into schools, associations such as rotary clubs and churches to speak about the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care and its team of dedicated nurses does and how people can access this care.

An Event Coordinator would be responsible for planning out the group’s event activities, generating ideas from the group and delegating out actions such as booking venues and sourcing raffle prizes.

Event helpers would be needed to help at the group’s events every couple of months – with duties such as welcoming guests, helping serve refreshments and preparing rooms for events.

Hannah Saxon Community Fundraiser said, “We need people with a broad range of skills to help us with our local fundraising activities, from people with the gift of the gab right through to organisers who can come up with event ideas. We also need as many helpers as possible, so if you think you’ve got a couple of hours a month that you’d be able to give to support the local Marie Curie nursing service please get in touch.”

All money raised by the group is to provide high quality nursing care to terminally ill patients, totally free, in the local area.

If you think you have a few hours spare every few weeks and would like to get involved with the fundraising group, please contact Hannah Saxon Community Fundraiser 01904 755260 or email
