DIABETES UK is looking for volunteers in Weston to help with a charity collection next month.

The charity is organising a Big Collection weekend at Tesco stores across the South West between June 13-15, as part of a major national charity partnership between the two organisations.

Specifically, Diabetes UK wants a team of leader volunteers to help co-ordinate the collection locally and motivate collection teams over the weekend.

Diabetes UK’s South West regional manager Phaedra Perry said: “We are proud that nine out of 10 people who volunteered last year said they would again, which means they really must have enjoyed it.

“We are looking for motivated, approachable and organised team leader volunteers.

“They need to have a desire to help raise lots of money for a fantastic cause.”

The weekend will follow directly on from diabetes week, and all money raised will go towards supporting the 3.8 million UK residents with the condition of which 9,500 have been diagnosed in North Somerset.

To volunteer as a team leader for the Big Collection weekend, e-mail south.west@diabetes.org.uk or call 01823 448260.
