An appeal has gone out for people in the Ribble Valley to help volunteer with one of the UK’s largest charities.

The Ribble Valley fund raising group of Marie Curie Cancer Care is recruiting people who have a few hours to spare who could help out in a variety of ways, from organising and taking part in supermarket collections to helping support the group in organising events.

As one of the country’s largest charities Marie Cure employs more than 2,700 nurses, doctors and health care professionals providing care to more than 35,000 terminally ill patients in the community and its nine hospices.

Katherine Howell, fundraiser for Lancashire, said: “We are looking for individuals who are organised with great communication skills to join our fantastic group in the Ribble Valley.

“All the money raised provides free care for terminally ill patients in the local area.”
