CanTeen calls for volunteers for Bandanna Challenge 2013

CanTeen is looking for volunteers from all over the country to help sell bandannas and collect donations during their annual ‘Bandanna Challenge’ which runs from 13 – 29 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 as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling.

Five bandanna designs feature in this year’s line-up – collaborated designs from CanTeen ambassadors Dan Carter and Patient Member Annabel Ariki (Christchurch), Maria Tutaia and Sibling Member Azura-Eve Silberschmidt (Rotorua), the NZ Breakers and Patient Member Jessica Hamilton (Auckland), plus individual designs from Clara van Wel, winner of last year’s NZ’s Got Talent, and Patient Member Miro Tidswell-Groot (Nelson).

CanTeen, which receives no direct government funding, acknowledges that volunteers play an invaluable part in helping deliver its activities and raise much-needed funds for young people living with cancer.

To volunteer, phone 0800 CANTEEN (226 8336), email info@canteen.org.nz or complete the volunteer registration form on the website canteen.org.nz/get-involved/bandanna-challenge-2013

Schools and businesses can also register to sell bandannas and organise fundraising events such as mufti days and head shaves to show their support. Visit canteen.org.nz/get-involved to register your school or business to take part.
