Collectors wanted

by Anonymous Author

Child Cancer Foundation is calling for volunteers in Selwyn to lend a hand for its annual street collection. 

This year’s collection will take place on Friday, 16 and Saturday, 17 of March, during Child Cancer Foundation Appeal Month.

Child Cancer Foundation chief executive, Robyn Kiddle, said dedicated olunteers are urgently needed to donate their time and help raise vital funds, so Child Cancer Foundation can continue to support more than 1,700 families nationwide in hospital, at home and in the community. 

“There are collection sites nationwide and just a couple of hours out of people’s days will make a huge difference,” she said.

“We are grateful to anyone who can spare a couple of hours to raise funds to help Kiwi kids with cancer and their families.

“Schools or businesses can also ‘adopt’ a collection site in their local area for one or both days and involve staff, students and parents in this event.”

People interested in volunteering as collectors can register at or call 0800 424 453 to be connected with their local organiser.
