Marie Curie urgently needs your support to help people with a terminal illness in the Vale of Glamorgan this Christmas, many of who will be enjoying their last together with the people they love.
By giving up just two hours of your time to collect donations at your local supermarket, you will be helping the charity provide nursing care and emotional support to families including those who will be spending Christmas Day in the Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth. We will be collecting in Barry Morrisons on Saturday 7th December and Barry Tesco on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th December 2019.
Christmas is about creating memories and being together at a special time, with the people we love. By signing up to volunteer with friends, family or colleagues for Marie Curie, you’ll be making a huge difference to people who could be spending their last Christmas together, or to those for whom this will be the first without their mum, dad, husband or wife.
Hannah Leckie, local Community Fundraiser for the Vale of Glamorgan said: “In the build up to Christmas we desperately need the people of Barry to grab a friend or family member and collect donations for Marie Curie."
"Our volunteers always have a fun and rewarding time collecting donations in their local communities and it’s the perfect way to give something back and get into the Christmas spirit."
"The money you raise will also be helping up reach more people with a terminal illness and the loved ones supporting them. Just two hours of your time, collecting at the local supermarket or on the high street, will make a massive difference to so many people.”
For many people living with a terminal illness this will be their last Christmas. With your help, Marie Curie staff, volunteers and support team can help families spend this special time of year the way they want, together.
