We know it’s important that young people have access to information about cancer. Seven out of ten 12-19 year olds in the UK know someone who has, or has had cancer. The same number says they wouldn’t know what to say to a friend with cancer.



 



By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV



•           gaining experience of event planning, fundraising and of the charity sector in general



•           knowing your support is helping the 2.5 million people in the UK who are currently living with cancer.

We’re looking for people who are interested in volunteering - and would be prepared to commit to a Thursday evening recording once a month - from 6.30pm to 9.00pm. We are all on teams for editing, reading, despatch etc and each of us attends on a rota basis - either once a fortnight or once a month.



 



If you are ‘techy’ already then the training for the sound recording role for example should be fine - but probably the best thing for anyone interested in any aspect of the work we do, would be to visit us on a Thursday evening. 



We are very fortunate indeed to have our own recording studio in central Hull - thanks to you legacy of a kind volunteer many years ago.
