Volunteers needed for Diabetes UK collection

Have your say

Diabetes UK is looking for energetic volunteers in the Antrim area to support a collection weekend at their local Tesco store.

The Big Collection weekend will take place in Tesco stores on June 13, 14, and 15 with the aim of raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for Diabetes UK, as part of the major national charity partnership between the two organisations.

Diabetes UK is recruiting volunteers across Northern Ireland and is looking for volunteers in Antrim to support the Big Collection weekend locally. Volunteers can select morning or afternoon sessions running from 9am until 6pm on June 13 and 14, and 1pm to 6pm on June 15.

Iain Foster, Diabetes UK National Director for Northern Ireland, said: “We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers in Antrim with a desire to help raise lots of money for a fantastic cause.

“The weekend takes place at the end of Diabetes Week this year and it is a great way to inform customers about diabetes while raising money for Diabetes UK.

“Last year Diabetes UK Northern Ireland enjoyed a very successful Big Collection weekend and we are delighted to be doing it all over again.

“Our volunteers were fantastic and made a huge difference during what was a really fun weekend. We are proud that 9 out of 10 people who volunteered for the Big Collection weekend last year said they would volunteer again, which means they really must have enjoyed it. We look forward to another fun weekend at the next collection in June.”
