Workers from local estate agent, Mullucks Wells, stepped in to help a cancer charity collection in Bishop’s Stortford last week.
The charity had been planning to hold bucket collections during the morning and evening rush hours at Bishop’s Stortford train station and all day at the Jackson Square shopping centre but needed more volunteers.
The volunteers were led by the Managing Director of Mullucks Wells, Richard Roberts. He said: “We were delighted to see so many people stopping to give so generously, especially considering how cold it was. Helen Rollason Cancer Charity is one of the three local charities that we chose to be the beneficiaries of our year-long fundraising to celebrate our 21st birthday so when we heard that they needed volunteers, we were only too pleased to help.”
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity supports people living with cancer. Mullucks Wells is aiming to raise enough money over the year to support the Sawbridgeworth Cancer Support Centre for six months. This award-winning centre is where cancer patients and their families and friends can go for counselling and support. The patients can also have therapies to complement their medical treatment - including massage and reflexology – which the charity provides free of charge.
The charity’s Fundraising Manager for Hertfordshire, Michael Baim, commented: “Our Hertfordshire volunteers are very dedicated but it’s not always easy for people to help during the working week. We are very grateful to Mullucks Wells and with their support, we were able to raise over £600.”
