Volunteering at the Macmillan Centre

Would you like to become a volunteer?

The work of the Southport Macmillan Information and Support Centre wouldn’t be possible without the support and hard work of our team of volunteers. Our volunteers are involved in all kinds of events and activities at the centre and many of them have been personally affected by cancer in some way.

Doreen was presented at a glittering event at the Ramada Hotel, with her award for her outstanding contribution, by representatives from The Visiter and Scottish Power, who sponsor the foundation.

Doreen - VolunteerDoreen (pictured) is one of our team of volunteers, joining us two years ago which was ten years on from her cancer diagnosis. Doreen helped with administration and then, using her talent as a Blackwork Embroider, volunteered to lead a six week Blackwork and Stitching Programme for people affected by cancer. The classes were such a success that ‘In Stitches’ group was born and 12 months later they are still going strong and welcoming new members. We are delighted, but not surprised that Doreen won the Southport Visiter Volunteer Hero Award in 2014.

 

Would you be interested in volunteering? We always welcome new volunteers and wonder if this is something you might like to get involved with. We will provide you with training and support to match your skills and preferences. Maybe you have some time to spare each week? Maybe you have been affected by cancer and would like to give something back? Our wonderful, friendly volunteers help with various support groups, coffee mornings, meet and greet visitors at the Centre and provide essential help with events and IT tasks.
