Cancer charity seeks collection volunteers
The Child Cancer Foundation needs volunteers in Matamata to collect on Beads of Courage Day this Friday, March 23.
The Foundation’s goal is to raise $1 million on Beads of Courage Day and throughout Child Cancer Appeal Month in March to help children with cancer and their families.
The foundation aims to reduce the impact of cancer by offering services to ensure children and their families are supported, informed and well cared for on their journey with cancer. Three children are diagnosed with cancer each week in New Zealand and collectively undergo a total of 100,000 treatments and procedures annually.
For each of these they receive a Bead of Courage from the Child Cancer Foundation.
2011 Castalia Report showed that the foundation delivers high-value, low-cost, effective child And family support services and programmes. This is achieved with the aid of your generosity and time.
