Child Cancer Foundation is calling for volunteers nationwide to lend a hand for its annual street collection, taking place on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th March, during Child Cancer Foundation Appeal Month.

Dedicated volunteers are urgently needed to donate their time and help raise vital funds, so Child Cancer Foundation can continue to support more than 1,700 families’ nationwide in hospital, at home and in the community.

Robyn Kiddle, Chief Executive at Child Cancer Foundation explains: “There are collection sites nationwide and just a couple of hours out of people’s days will make a huge difference. We are grateful to anyone who can spare a couple of hours to raise funds to help Kiwi kids with cancer and their families.”

Schools or businesses can also “adopt” a collection site in their local area for one or both days and involve staff, students and parents in this event.

People interested in volunteering as collectors can register at or call 0800 424 453 to be connected with their local organiser.
