Help needed for cancer charity in Seaford

Seaford Volunteer Fundraising Committee is appealing for new members and fundraisers to help support the work of Cancer Research UK.

After beginning fundraising in 1959, the committee has since raised more than £300,000 to help fund the charity’s vital research.

Chair of Seaford Volunteer Fundraising Committee Clare Barnes said: “I would like to appeal to people from across Sussex to volunteer their time and join the Seaford Volunteer Fundraising Committee or simply just do some fundraising to raise funds to support the life saving work of Cancer Research UK.

“This type of fundraising is rewarding in so many ways. It is sociable and a great way to meet new people.

“Furthermore, our fundraising efforts contribute directly to helping Cancer Research UK scientists continue their research into the prevention and treatment of cancer.

“If you wish to be part of the team we would love to hear from you please do get in touch 07500 104630.”

Cancer Research UK’s local fundraising manager for East Sussex Benita Wright added: “I would like to thank Seaford Volunteer Fundraising Committee for the fantastic amount they have raised and the massive contribution they have made to our vital work over the past 54 years.

“Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and continues to do so.

“However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our vital research.” Visit www.cruk.org to find out more.
