COULD YOU SPARE A COUPLE OF HOURS TO HELP A LOCAL CHARITY?

COULD YOU SPARE A COUPLE OF HOURS TO HELP A LOCAL CHARITY?

A local charity is appealing for volunteers to join them for a few hours to help raise money for local patients, families and carers.

St Ann’s Hospice is holding a series of charity collections throughout Carers Week (between 9 and 15 June) in the Trafford Centre and Manchester City Centre, and is looking for help from people who might be able to volunteer their time to help them raise as much money as possible.

Lucy Leeming, Fundraising Manager, said: “At St Ann’s we’re proud to support not just the patients who come to our hospice sites or are visited by our teams in the community, but also their carers and loved ones too.  That’s why we wanted to run these collections during Carers Week, to try and raise as much money as possible to help us to continue providing that invaluable support at such a difficult time.

“We’d love as many local people as possible to join us, even just for an hour or two, to help raise vital funds for that much-needed care.  There are flexible slots throughout the days, and we can promise it will be lots of fun.  Our mascot Stan will be coming along to join us, and there’ll be entertainment and props on the days too!

“Please do let us know if you can help out – even for an hour or two – as your time really will make a huge difference to local patients, their carers and loved ones.  We’d love you to join us.”

The collections will take place on Saturday 9 June, Friday 14 June and Saturday 15 June in Manchester City Centre, as well as in the Trafford Centre on Saturday 15 June.
