A MEDICAL research charity is calling on people to be volunteers.

The Gosport branch of Wessex Medical Research is looking for members and supporters to help organise fundraising events.

The charity has raised nearly £19m for funding new lines of research into fighting disease and improving health.

Volunteers are needed to join the Gosport fundraising committee, which meets for a few hours every six weeks to suggest and organise fundraising events in Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent.

Further details can be obtained from the chairman of the Gosport group, Richard Thomson, by calling (023) 9252 9192.

Alternatively, call fundraising manager Wendy Birchall on 07792 586243.
