Marie CurieUrgent appeal for Collecting Tin Volunteers in Hebden Bridge

Wednesday, 8 January 2014

Marie Curie Cancer Care is looking for local people to become Volunteer Box Collectors and help to gather in our collecting tins from the Hebden Bridge area.

Last year the collecting tins out in shops and businesses raised over £16,000 in the Bradford, Calderdale and Craven area. However, we need you help to gather in these collecting tins, count and bank the contents and turn the pounds into nursing care that the local community so desperately needs.

By becoming a Volunteer Collection Tin Coordinator you will help the local Community Fundraising team by checking on collecting tins that are placed in businesses in Hebden Bridge, counting and banking the proceeds, as well as finding new places for tins. All the tins are checked on a quarterly basis during the year, and then replaced with a daffodil box in March for the charity's Great Daffodil Appeal.

We are currently in great need of volunteers in Hebden Bridge to liaise directly with the fundraising office to manage the tin appeal in the area.

Helen Rowlands, local fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care told the HebWeb, 'Being a Volunteer Tin Collector is a great way to use your local knowledge of the community to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. We really need to find people who can help us collect in the amazing amount of donations we receive during the year! The role is flexible to fit around your other commitments, and is a brilliant way to get involved with your community and to give something back. We'd love you to be part of it!'
