Care and support through terminal illness
As the local face of Marie Curie’s fundraising team, fundraising group members donate their time and effort to raise money to help us continue caring for people with terminal illnesses and their families.
Our fundraising groups also act as ambassadors, helping to spread the word about the work of Marie Curie and supporting local people, clubs and organisations to fundraise too.
