END of life charity Marie Curie is on the hunt for Silhillians to join its volunteer fundraising team.
The Marsh Lane hospice is calling for people to join a group in Solihull, Marston Green or Balsall Common to raise funds to keep the hospice going.
The Solihull Fundraising Group has been running since 2013 and has raised £250,433.13 for the charity.
Volunteer Suzanne Hughes from Solihull said: “I joined the fundraising group 10 years ago because I wanted to do something for a charity that had given so much care to my mum at the end of her life.
“I’ve never regretted that decision, I have had a lot of fun and also used skills I didn’t even know I had including networking, IT, finance, organising and hosting events and donning the yellow hat whilst meeting the community out collecting.”
Sam Murphy, community fundraiser said: “Group members make an enormous difference locally by helping to raise the vital funds needed to support Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.
“Our group organises fundraising activities and collections in the local community, as well as supporting Marie Curie’s major fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and Blooming Great Tea Party.”
For anyone interested an is set to be held on November 17 from 6.30pm to 8pm.
