CanTeen calls for volunteers for Bandanna Challenge 2012

CanTeen calls for volunteers for Bandanna Challenge 2012

As Volunteers around the country are celebrated during Volunteer Awareness Week this week, CanTeen is encouraging those wanting to do their bit to lend their hands to this year’s Bandanna Challenge.

CanTeen is looking for volunteers from all over the country to help sell bandannas and collect donations during CanTeen’s annual Bandanna Challenge which runs from 14 – 30 September.

The money raised through CanTeen’s annual appeal helps provide vital support, skills and tools for young people, aged 13 – 24, living with cancer, whether as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling.

With designs from CanTeen ambassadors Dan Carter, Maria Tutaia, Paige Hareb, Jossi Wells and Federation clothing, plus funky member designs, this year’s bandannas promise to be an easy sell.

CanTeen, which receives no direct government funding, acknowledges that volunteers play an invaluable part in helping deliver its activities and raise much needed funds.

Schools and businesses can also register to sell bandannas.

To volunteer, phone 0800 CANTEEN, email or find your closest CanTeen office at
