Description

Meet new people, have fun and raise funds for Marie Curie to support people living with a terminal illness, and their families.

Our fantastic fundraising groups help raise vital funds for people living with a terminal illness and their families.
They play an important role by taking part in all our national fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal, Blooming Great Tea Party and other yearly collections.
We also rely on them to help organise fundraising events and activities within their local community. Our groups act as ambassadors, helping to spread the word about the work of Marie Curie and encouraging and supporting local people, clubs and organisations to fundraise for us too. All across the UK, groups of volunteers meet regularly to organise and support fundraising activities in their local community.

Marie Curie are here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
We offer expert care, guidance and support to help them get the most from the time they have left. Our nurses work night and day, in people’s homes across the UK, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Our hospices offer specialist round-the-clock care. And we support people throughout their illness by giving practical information, support from trained volunteers and being there when someone wants to talk

Organisation aims and objectives

To raise the funds to support the local Marie Curie Nurses, who provide hands on nursing care to patients who have cancer or any other terminal illness, to allow them to spend the final days, weeks and months of their lives in the comfort of their own homes. Our local area covers The Borders and Dumfries and Galloway
