A new fundraising group to support the UK’s leading end of life charity Marie Curie has been created in Scarborough.

The Scarborough Marie Curie Fundraising Group will play an important role locally in raising awareness and funds for Marie Curie and is looking forward to holding its first event.

The group will also take part in national Marie Curie fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and other yearly collections.

Amelia Forrest, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for Scarborough, said: “Our volunteers tell us how much satisfaction they get from giving even a small amount of time but helping make a huge difference in their local community.

“I’d urge anyone interested in hearing more to get in touch. With the continued support from the people of Scarborough we can help more people have the best possible end of life, wherever they are and whatever their illness.”

“This is only a fledgling group with a handful of members so we’re keen to hear from potential volunteers who can take part or help us organise various events around Scarborough, as well as supporting Marie Curie’s major fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal.

“Volunteering is not only a great way of giving something back to the community, it’s also a chance to meet new people and make new friends.”
