The Heart Foundation is looking for big-hearted volunteers from across the Narromine Shire to take part in the annual Doorknock Appeal this September.
The charity hopes to recruit an army of 120,000 volunteers from all over Australia who will aim to raise $5 million nationally to help the fight against heart disease, the number one killer of Australian men and women.
“As a charity, we rely on volunteers and public donations to carry out our lifesaving work,” Heart Foundation NSW CEO Tony Thirlwell said.
“This year our aim is to raise $5 million to fund critical research and community projects to improve awareness, prevention and treatment of heart disease, which kills one Australian every 24 minutes.
“To reach this goal, we need to recruit volunteers in every suburb across Australia so please register for our Doorknock Appeal today – it’s a simple and rewarding way to help save lives from heart disease.”
Each volunteer collector will be allocated about 20 houses to doorknock either in their own street or local neighbourhood. They will also be provided with an official Heart Foundation identification badge and Doorknock receipt book.
If you would like to volunteer in your area, please contact the Heart Foundation Doorknock Hotline on 1800 55 22 55 or register online at www.heartfoundation.org.au/doorknock.
