North Devon branch of well-known cancer charity is seeking a volunteer willing to lead the local group

A leading charity is looking for a volunteer to help them reach even more people in North Devon who are affected by cancer.

Macmillan Cancer Support is seeking a volunteer who will be willing to take on a variety of tasks, from leading the group and chairing meetings to organising fundraising events along with other group members.

Fundraising manager for Plymouth, North Devon & Tamar Valley, Sian Ward-Edwards said: “This role would be ideal for someone with excellent organisational and people skills.
