Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

A CHAR­ITY has warned it ur­gently needs up to 250 vol­un­teers to help with street col­lec­tions and bag packs in the run-up to Christ­mas.

Cancer Fo­cus North­ern Ire­land said it was un­der “se­ri­ous pres­sure” and urged peo­ple to spare a few hours.

Vol­un­teer co-or­di­na­tor Morag Cham­bers ex­plained: “Many busi­ness and or­gan­i­sa­tions are will­ing to let us hold col­lec­tions and events on their premises, but we just don’t have enough vol­un­teers to do the work. We are un­der se­ri­ous pres­sure.”

Any­one who wishes to help can con­tact the char­ity on 9066 3281 or at mor­agcham­bers@can­cer­fo­cusni.org to choose a date and venue.
