Marie Curie Cancer Care are appealing to the people of Leeds to help raise thousands of pounds by looking after collection tins in their local area.
The charity needs more people to help manage collection tins that are in the shops, bars and restaurants throughout the Leeds area especially in Crossgates and Osmondthorpe. The money raised from these tins helps to provide one-to-one nursing care for terminally ill people in their own home.
Hannah Saxon, Community Fundraiser said: “Looking after the collection tins is a really effective way to help support local Marie Curie nurses. We’ve got tins out in shops and pubs but no one to look after them, so they aren’t raising as much money as they could, which in turn affects the amount of Marie Curie nursing we can provide. We’re looking for people who can go around sites in their local area once every 3 months to replace the full tin with an empty one, then count and bank the money raised”.
There is fantastic support to Marie Curie Cancer Care from the local businesses in the area, taking on the role and helping to support the collection tins in the area will make sure that every penny gets in the bank to support the local nursing service.
