Bridgend & Porthcawl volunteers raise over £100000 for terminal illness charity

Bridgend Porthcawl Fundraising Group are celebrating a milestone after raising over £100,000 for Marie Curie over since 2011

The group range from 16 to 75 years old and includes a Reverend, a Marie Curie Nurse and a full time student, all of whom give up their time to help raise funds to support those living with terminal illness.  All money raised by the Bridgend Porthcawl Fundraising Group will help Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to help people with a terminal illness, and their families, get the most from the time they have left.

Locally, Marie Curie Nurses work night and day, in people’s homes, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Marie Curie also supports people throughout their illness by giving practical information for those living with terminal illness, and their loved ones. The charity is also the leader in research into better ways of caring for people with terminal illness.

Helen Thomas, Chairperson of the Fundraising Group said:

“We are thrilled to have reached £100,000 of fundraising for Marie Curie and thank all those who have supported us in the past.  The people of Bridgend and Porthcawl really are generous when giving to Marie Curie and always supportive of the events and activities we organise, we really couldn’t do it without them. We have plans for more fundraising events soon, and to continue to help Marie Curie care and support people through terminal illness.

“We are always looking for anyone interested in joining the group, or anyone who can simply spare a few hours at our bucket collections.”
