MARIE Curie is appealing for volunteers in the Wellington area to help raise funds to support people in Somerset living with a terminal illness and their families.

Riona Houghton, Marie Curie community fundraiser for Somerset and North Devon, said: “Without our amazing volunteers we could not support illness and their families as we do.

“Currently we have more than 7,200 volunteers across the UK in community fundraising and retail but we are always looking for extra help. The more volunteers we have, the more we can achieve.

“Whether you’re a seasoned fundraiser or a newcomer looking to get love to hear from you. No amount of time is too little, even an hour at a collection would be a huge help to our team.”

Anyone who would like to volunteer some of their time to support Marie Curie in Somerset should contact Riona on 0117 9420429 or email [email protected]
