Langport & District Red Cross Group is appealing for collectors during the 2020 Red Cross Week, 3rd-9th May.
An hour or two of a volunteer's time during this week would be welcomed and will help keep the Red Cross voluntary service running in this area.
With all the new housing, extra house-to-house collectors are needed to cover as many as possible of the villages and towns in South Somerset , as well as volunteers to help for an hour or two holding a bucket at local shops.
As the last remaining volunteer-run Red Cross Centre in the UK, it is very important to raise funds locally, to justify continuing local presence.
The Centre in the main Langport Car Park is open every morning, except Sunday, selling donated goods and providing friendship and company over a hot, or cold, drink and a biscuit (or two...). Donations of items for sale are always welcomed. Also carried are a small stock of disability aids for loan or purchase.
Please contact Chris, the Group Leader, on 01458 273085 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
