Marie Curie seek volunteers

SIR, - I am writing to call on Berwickshire News readers to join the East Berwickshire Fundraising Group for Marie Curie Cancer Care, which is starting up and looking for members.

Group members can make an enormous difference locally by helping to raise the vital funds needed to support Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.

The East Berwickshire Fundraising Group will promote fundraising within the local community by organising fundraising activities and collections, encouraging new volunteers to help the charity, as well as supporting Marie Curie’s major fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and Blooming Great Tea Party.

To join your local volunteer Fundraising Group, or to find out more about the group and other ways to support the charity, please call Maureen or Sheila on 01573 224440 or email sheila.laing@mariecurie.org.uk
