Charity on the lookout for South Shields volunteers

Make a New Year’s resolution to make a difference.

Marie Curie, which offers care and support for terminally-ill people, is looking for enthusiastic individuals raring to engage with the local community in South Shields.

The charity is encouraging local people to join the South Shields Fundraising Group and make a difference, all while meeting new people in the area, having fun and helping to secure the ongoing support delivered by Marie Curie.

The charity is holding a meeting on Wednesday, January 27, at 6pm, in Cleadon Park Primary Care Centre, Prince Edward Road, for anyone who is interested in getting involved.

As a Fundraising Group Member volunteers will be responsible for raising crucial funds and as much awareness as possible.

With other group members, they will organise collections, fundraising events and other awareness activities.

Fundraising Groups will also promote the work of the charity and encourage support for Marie Curie within their local community.

Community Fundraiser Charlotte Campbell said: “Joining the South Shields Fundraising Group is a wonderful way to play an important role in the work of a national charity at a local level, make new friendships and engage with your community

“We’re really excited and it will make a huge difference locally by helping to raise awareness of the free care Marie Curie provides to people with terminal illnesses in the local area.”
