This year Red Cross Week is Sunday 6 to Saturday 12 May and our volunteers will be collecting around the area.
We used to have a huge collection in Curry Rivel, but over the years lost all the volunteer house-to-house collectors and in the past few years we have had none. I would love to have some offers, even if only for a few houses one evening during that week, or perhaps hold a bucket somewhere with a good footfall. We have to keep the donations coming in at Langport or London will be threatening our centre with closure yet again!
If you think you can help, please contact me, Chris Cox, on 01458 273085 or email: email@example.com
