With Christmas Day looming, Marie Curie fundraisers and supporters are putting out an early appeal for volunteers to come forward to sign up to help out with the charity’s Christmas Collection Appeal 2015 and lend a hand manning festive fundraising collection days at venues across the town and surrounding area during November and December.
The charity holds its vital festive collections in the run up to Christmas each year to help raise funds to support people living with any terminal illness, and their families to help them make the most of the time they have left. Marie Curie nurses bring light in the darkest of hours. They work through the night giving care and support but this is only possible with the help of people like you.
Local fundraisers are looking for help at the following collections and dates:
- Morrisons Local, Harrogate – 28 November
- Cambridge Street, Harrogate – 12 December
Local Community Fundraiser Hannah Saxon said:
The reaction you get from the general public when you collect at Christmas is wonderful and it’s a fantastically rewarding way to spend just a couple of hours of your time. Every donation collected will help us provide even more hours of nursing care and now more than ever we need your support to ensure we are able to care for even more terminally ill people in their own homes when they, and their families, need our support most.
