Volunteers are needed to join Bath’s first ever fundraising group for Marie Curie, the UK’s leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families.
Fundraising Groups organise collections, fundraising activities and events and support the charity’s major campaigns including the Great Daffodil Appeal and Blooming Great Tea Party.
Members often represent Marie Curie locally by attending events, receiving donations on Marie Curie’s behalf and holding talks within local clubs and societies.
Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for Bath, Emma Hildesley (pictured above) said: “This new group will be the face of Marie Curie in Bath. They will raise our profile in the area, spreading the word about how our services can support those living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.
“There are so many benefits to joining a Fundraising Group including meeting new friends and like-minded people in the area, getting involved in your community, gaining new skills and having fun raising money to provide support for terminally ill people in your local area.
“We are holding an event on Tuesday 10th September where those interested can come along and find out more. The event will begin with a walking tour of Bath’s medical history led by local supporter Dr Roger Rolls from Bath Medical Museum – a great way to get to know other potential group members.
“The tour will conclude with some light refreshments at the Roman Bath’s Kitchen at 5:45pm where we will be on hand to discuss opportunities and answer any questions you may have.”
Places for the event are limited. For information & to book your place call Emma on 07713080412 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
