Marie Curie seeks Christmas volunteers in Knutsford

By on November 20, 2018

Charity Marie Curie needs your help this Christmas to help support people with a terminal illness.

They’re looking for volunteers to spend just 2 hours to help them collect donations in supermarkets, shopping centres and high streets, with funds raised going to support families and provide nursing care.

Lucinda Ellison, community fundraiser for the Knutsford area said:

“In the build-up to Christmas we desperately need the people of Knutsford to grab a friend or family member and collect donations for Marie Curie. Our volunteers always have a fun and rewarding time collecting donations in their communities, and it’s the perfect way to give something back and get into the Christmas spirit. The money you raise will also be helping us reach more people with a terminal illness and the loved ones supporting them. Just two hours of your time, collecting at the local supermarket or on the high street, will make a massive difference to so many people.”

Marie Curie employs 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals, and with its nine hospices around the UK, is the largest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS.
