The charity is asking people to do at least a one hour shift, hopefully two, holding a bucket and encouraging people to donate money to help people in crisis in Suffolk.

All money raised will be spent on the charity’s vital work in the county including First Aid, wheelchair provision, help for the elderly and emergency response.

The collection is at Tesco on Thursday,May 9.

If you are energetic, enthusiastic and want to raise money for a fantastic cause, the charity would like to hear from you.

It is a fantastic way to meet new people, have fun and an easy method of raising money for little effort.

If you would like to help contact Paul Fleet on either 01603 253 412 or pfleet@redcross.org.uk.

Paul Fleet, Senior Community Fundraiser for British Red Cross in Norfolk and Suffolk said: “I am really excited about these collections.

"The people of Haverhill are always so friendly and generous.

"Obviously, the more volunteers we have, the more we can raise, so any support would be appreciated.”

He adds: “The British Red Cross is very well known for being an international charity but we do many things in Suffolk such as First Aid tuition and provision, emergency response and the hire of mobility aids such as wheelchairs that you cannot get on the NHS.”
