The British Red Cross are looking for volunteers to help with a collection at Lynn’s Sainsbury’s store on Hardwick.

The collection will take place on Saturday, July 2, between 9am and 5pm.

It will help raise vital funds for local services such as first aid provision and tuition, support for the elderly, emergency response, local refugee support and mobility aid such as wheelchair and walking stick provision.

Paul Fleet, senior community fundraiser for British Red Cross in Norfolk and Suffolk said: “These collections really do help with our services in Norfolk.”

The charity is also looking to start a new fundraising group in West Norfolk.

If you have an hour or two to spare or would like to get involved with the new fundraising group, call Paul on either 01603 253 412 or pfleet@redcross.org.uk

Last year, Red Cross volunteers raised £1.2 million during Red Cross Week.

That money was used to support vital work in the UK and overseas, providing unconditional care for vulnerable people in crisis.
