A CANCER charity is appealing for volunteers to found a fundraising group.

Macmillan Cancer Support is seeking a friendly team of helpers from South West Essex - including Chigwell, Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Woodford Green - to work together to organise events.

Past fundraisers held by other groups include dinner dances, curry nights, Christmas parties, quiz evenings and coffee mornings.

Volunteers can decide how much time to give up and meetings will be arranged to suit their availability.

Macmillan's Herts and Essex fundraising manager Laura Bazzoni said: "By joining this new fundraising group, volunteers will be making a huge difference to Macmillan and, ultimately, to the lives of people affected by cancer."
