Christmas spirit needed in Northwich and Middlewich for cancer care
A COMMUNITY fundraiser is encouraging Northwich and Middlewich residents to help raise hundreds of pounds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The charity needs more volunteers to help man its cash collections at supermarkets throughout the area this Christmas to ensure that every hour of every collection is covered.
Laura Tomlinson, community fundraiser for Northwich, said: “We have amazing volunteers in Northwich and Middlewich and a fantastic fundraising group in Northwich who five their time to collect each year, but we always need more volunteers to make sure we don’t miss out on valuable collecting time and therefore valuable donations from festive shoppers.
“We’re really lucky in Northwich and Middlewich that the supermarkets and shopping centres have been so generous in offering us dates to collect – we just want to make sure we make the most of this opportunity to raise much-needed funds for cancer care.”
Collections will take place at Aldi Northwich on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27, and at Tesco Middlewich on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8.
Laura added: “By giving us just two hours of your time this Christmas to help collect in a supermarket, you’ll be helping us raise much-needed funds.
“Christmas is a time for families and our nurses will again be working over the festive period to provide vital care and treatment to people who are terminally ill, enabling them to be at home, surrounded by their families and the things they hold most dear.
“Please get in touch today if you would like to give up a few hours to help fund local cancer care.”
