A charity, which helps people living with a terminal illness, is appealing for volunteers.

The Marie Curie fundraising team is seeking collection box co-ordinators in Lowestoft to help manage the charity's collection boxes that are on display in shops, newsagents, chemists, pubs and doctors' surgeries.

Jane Carlisle, Marie Curie fundraising manager for East of England, said: 'As a volunteer collection box co-ordinator you'll help to raise vital money and awareness for Marie Curie.

'We're appealing for people who can look after collection boxes in the local community, count and bank the monies and also spot new opportunities to place boxes in the community. It's a great way to get involved with Marie Curie.'

To become a Marie Curie collection box co-ordinator you need to be aged 16 or over. For more information, call Angela Bussey, community fundraiser for Suffolk on 01473 831329 or email
