A PENARTH hospice is in desperate need of volunteers to help support its fundraising team at its base in the town.

Marie Curie, a prominent charity organization that aids individuals with terminal illnesses and their families, is seeking new volunteers to assist its fundraising team at its hospice in Penarth.

The charity's hospice on Bridgeman Road is seeking volunteers to assist with administrative tasks related to the charity's fundraising efforts.

With the funds raised, Marie Curie nurses will be able to provide patients in hospice and home settings with practical care and crucial emotional support.

Community fundraiser AnnaMarie Jones said: “Volunteers really are the backbone of Marie Curie, and allow us to continue being there for people at the most vulnerable time. 

Office volunteers can provide administration support from contacting supporters to counting funds raised and are a vital part of our fundraising team.

“It is thanks to our amazing supporters, volunteers, and staff, across the UK that Marie Curie has been there for those affected by terminal illness over the past 75 years, but today our work is more needed than ever.”

Ms Jones urges people to support the charity with their time and donations which will help services of the hospice in the future.

“Last year 46,000 people were cared for by Marie Curie nurses and healthcare assistants and around 1.2 million people accessed our information and support services.

“With the continued support of the people of Wales, who support us with their time as well as their donations, we can ensure a future where everyone gets the best possible end-of-life care.”

Marie Curie, established on July 5, 1948, has been a steadfast support system for countless individuals facing terminal illness, bereavement, and grief.

The organisation recognizes that death, dying and bereavement are universal experiences, and it is their unwavering goal to ensure that everyone receives the most positive end-of-life experience possible.
