Charity Marie Curie are searching for volunteer collection box coordinator in Horsham SUS-150506-143824001

Marie Curie is looking for a volunteer, in Horsham, to look after collection tins and Daffodil boxes, placed in local shops.

The new coordinator will visit shops, every 6 – 12 weeks, to replace tins; checking they are correctly labelled, sealed and secured.

The contents will then need to be counted and banked. In February, they will place boxes of daffodil pins, in shops, to raise funds, for the Great Daffodil Appeal. All money raised will help Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support, so people with a terminal illness, and their families, can get the most from the time they have left.

This flexible role, which involves some paperwork, can fit around your usual activities. Full training will be given and volunteer registration is required, together with references. Every £20 raised provides an hour of vital nursing care.

Marie Curie Nurses work night and day, in people’s homes, across Sussex, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Marie Curie also supports people throughout their illness, by giving practical information, and being there when someone wants to talk. The charity is also the leader in research into better ways of caring for people with terminal illness.
