Marie Curie is looking for local people to join the York Fundraising Group to help raise vital funds so that Marie Curie nurses can continue to provide care for people with terminal illnesses in the comfort of their own homes.
Set up almost 4 years ago, the team of four volunteers has worked tirelessly on annual campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and last year alone, raised a staggering £17,600.
The group is looking for more people to join to help them stage imaginative, entertaining and successful events across York, explore new fundraising opportunities, build relationships with local businesses and organisations and uncover new sites for collection tins.
The group is also looking to recruit a Community Speaker to help champion the Charity’s work locally. The role involves working with organisations such as Women’s Institutes, schools, business networks and church groups to deliver a presentation that tells the Marie Curie story to ensure more people know about the Charity’s services in their area, how to access them and increase volunteering and fundraising support.
Katie Grinter, Volunteer Manager for Marie Curie explained: “Marie Curie nurses provide a vital service in our area, caring for local people with terminal illnesses. Whilst the Charity is part funded by the NHS, it is heavily dependent on donations from the general public and our fundraising groups play a pivotal role in supporting the Charity and raising awareness of its good work.”
If you have an affinity with Marie Curie, are organised, creative, keen to raise money for a worthy cause and looking for a new challenge, then why not join the team?
