Marie Curie seeks volunteers
12:01pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in Penarth news
VOLUNTEERS are being sought by a Vale fundraising group to help raise funds to support the work of Marie Curie in Penarth.
The Marie Curie Cancer Care volunteers are seeking people who can spare a few hours each week – young, old, working, studying, or retired.
The group meets regularly to organise and support fundraising activities to assist the Marie Curie hospice and its nurses – helping to give care and comfort to the terminally ill and their families.
Barry group secretary Susan Borges said: “Marie Curie Hospice Cardiff and the Vale costs more than £3.9 million a year to fund. The hospice is a 30-bedded unit offering high quality care for the terminally ill and respite care. Cancer patients staying at the hospice and in the immediate community attend day therapy sessions such as aromatherapy, art and crafts and physiotherapy.”
Vale mayor Cllr Margaret Wilkinson will host a coffee morning at the Civic Offices, Holton Road, Barry, from 10.30am on Tuesday, September 17.
Anyone interesting in volunteering is welcome to attend.
