A NEW volunteer Fundraising Group has launched in Moira to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The Moira Fundraising Group met at the Four Trees to celebrate the formal launch of the group and were joined by local councillor, Jennifer Coulter.
The Group will raise vital funds so Marie Curie Nurses can continue to provide free care to people with terminal illnesses, through supporting Marie Curie’s major fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and Blooming Great Tea Party, as well as promoting fundraising within the local community and encouraging new supporters to help the charity.
The first fundraising activity, on behalf of the charity, will be selling hand-made crafts at a stall at the Rowallane Craft Fair at Moira Presbyterian Church on Saturday, November 24.
Amanda Scott, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “The new Fundraising Group in Moira will make a huge difference locally by helping to raise the vital funds needed to support Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.”
