Cancer Council needs volunteers

CANCER is a significant health problem and the Cancer Council is looking for volunteers to be trained as community speakers.

Community speakers are volunteers who give up their time and skills to educate the community about cancer and its consequences.

These volunteers provide an important link with the community.

They are specially recruited and trained and equipped with the knowledge and resources to promote awareness about the Cancer Council’s information and support services.

The Community Speakers Program was developed to provide the community with relevant and up-to-date information on cancer prevention, early detection, support services and Cancer Council events.

If you are interested in becoming a community speaker, the Cancer Council is holding a training session in Coffs Harbour.

No previous public speaking experience is necessary and opportunities exist for those who are not comfortable speaking to large groups.

Community speaker training will be held at Club Coffs (formerly the Catholic Club) in West High High Street, Coffs Harbour, on Friday, January 28, from 10am to 4pm. Interested people must RSVP by contacting Vanessa Crossley phone 6659 8404 to regis- ter.
