Appeal seeks new army of volunteers in the build up to the busy Christmas season.

WITH the busy Christmas season approaching, the Chemotherapy Appeal fundraising team is looking for volunteers.

The team is seeking people to help with a range of tasks, including event planning and assistance, organising raffles and selling tickets, and running collections.

Volunteers are also wanted to sit in the hospital foyer and explain to visitors about the new building, as well as working with local companies and schools.

There is also a need for people to help in the appeal office, completing office administration and delivering and picking up tins.

Fundraiser Julie Whitton said: “Volunteering is a hugely sociable and rewarding activity, and working with Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund has the added benefit that your efforts will make a real and positive impact to patients in your area.

“No experience is necessary, just plenty of enthusiasm.”
