Cancer care Christmas collections

Friday 22nd November 2013

MARIE Curie Cancer Care will be holding Christmas collections at The Mall, Maidstone, on December 7, when they will be joined by a choir, and on December 20, when they will be joined by Roadchef (Maidstone).

Marie Curie Nurses work throughout the Christmas period, providing free care for people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Charlotte Jones, community fundraiser for the charity, said: “Christmas can be a very difficult time for some families, especially when a loved one is terminally ill. Marie Curie nurses make it possible for more terminally ill people to spend Christmas in their place of choice, surrounded by the people and things they love.”

The charity is also looking for local people to collect during the charity’s biggest fundraising campaign, the Great Daffodil Appeal. For more information call Charlotte Jones, on 01622 688656, or visit
