🌼Marie Curie 🌼

🌼I’ve just finished my 2-hour slot collecting donations for Marie Curie at Morrisons in Pontefract.


💖It was great to meet so many lovely people who donated for this great charity.


🏥Marie Curie is a very worthwhile cause providing care and support for people who are at the end of their life and the people who are close to them, right across the UK.


🌼Marie Curie Nurses and Healthcare Professionals provide expert hospice care, whatever the illness, in the comfort of home or in one of their nine hospices.


🏥Marie Curie Nurses give practical hands-on care to help people with any terminal illness remain at home.  They will often spend a whole nine-hour shift, usually at night, with one patient and their family.


They also do vital research and campaigning work to improve the end-of-life experience for everyone across the UK.


💰About half of it is funded by the NHS but the other half is funded by donations.


💡In 2022-23, Marie Curie Nurses and Healthcare Assistants cared for over 44,000 people and over 1.4 million accessed their online information and support.


💛So, if you’re out and about in the next couple of weeks and you see someone standing in a yellow tabard and a silly yellow hat, with a collection tin, please donate – if you don’t have any cash, they have a card reader to make payment by card.  It will help a great cause!
