A leading charity is looking for volunteers to help them reach even more people in Skelmersdale who are affected by cancer.
Macmillan Cancer Support needs volunteers who are willing to take on a variety of tasks, from attending collections to organising fundraising events!
Volunteers are also needed to join our brand new Skelmersdale fundraising group. By bringing creativity, energy and enthusiasm for fundraising to our team, volunteers can help support people affected by cancer.
Fundraising manager for Skelmersdale, Megan Kong said: “We have some really interesting volunteer roles available for people who want to take on a new challenge, have fun or just want to help us raise the money we need to fund our cancer services.
“For most of our roles, volunteers don’t need to have special skills or experience. They just need to be enthusiastic and willing to learn.
“We provide training if it’s needed and offer on-going support to ensure all our volunteers get the best possible experience while helping us be there for people affected by cancer”.
Macmillan is almost entirely funded by public donations and the charity says the support of volunteers is essential to helping it raise all the money it needs to fund its cancer services.
Macmillan support people with cancer and their families in a number of ways, including by providing specialist nurses who work within the NHS, giving grants to cancer patients with money problems and running a nurse-run support line.
Locally Macmillan has also funded the newly opened Macmillan Information Centre at the Concourse Shopping Centre.
