A hospice is appealing for volunteers to help out with a fundraising parade, which comes to Morley this weekend.

Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice is looking for entertainers and bucket collectors to participate in its flag day, which rolls runs through Queen Street and Scatcherd Park this Saturday.

The hospice says that it will be a “fantastic opportunity” for entertainers to showcase their talents to the public and is urging anyone with such a niche to get in touch.

Katie Bell, fundraising assistant at Wheatfields Hospice, said: “You can get involved with our bucket collections, and if you are an entertainer of any kind it’s an opportunity to showcase your talent.

“The flag day will have people up and down Morley town centre raising funds for Wheatfields Hospice. All we need is you.”

Wheatfields offers care to people with life-limiting illnesses across Leeds and provides emotional support to their families too.

It offers 24 hour assistance to patients in its 18 bed clinic in Headingley but also treats people in their homes, with 900 visits being made to homes in the South Leeds area last year as part of its community service.
