Appeal coordinator wanted

by Anonymous Author

The Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand is looking for help in Leeston during its annual Pink Ribbon Appeal next month.

The foundation is looking for someone who can assist with managing volunteers and coordinating people in Leeston for the annual Pink Ribbon Appeal on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13.

“The Pink Ribbon Appeal funds a large chunk of our work, so there’s a direct link between the time people give on the street and our ability to fund research, support and education programmes,” Evangelia Henderson, chief executive of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, said.

“An area coordinator will manage a small team of volunteers, receive and distribute stock to volunteers, oversee the appeal sites in Leeston on the appeal days and bank the donated funds.

“We will provide everything you’ll need, including a detailed brief beforehand.”

During the appeal, volunteers across New Zealand will raise money at more than 1,000 collection points. Their efforts will fund research into new treatments, support for women going through breast cancer and lifesaving awareness and education programmes.

To become a coordinator or a volunteer people can contact BCFNZ by email, or by phone on 0508 105 105.
