Solihull called on to help raise funds for Marie Curie this Christmas

Solihull Editorial 10th Dec, 2023   0

SILHILLIANS are being called on to help bring care, comfort, and joy this festive season by fundraising for Marie Curie’s Christmas Appeal.

Whether it be a Christmas quiz, carol-oke session or a cosy hot chocolate morning – fundraisers will be helping to raise the much-needed funds to help Marie Curie support people facing the toughest of times this festive season.

The charity is dependent on fundraising and public donations so that Marie Curie Nurses and healthcare professionals can provide expert hospice care, whatever the illness, in the comfort of home and at its hospice in Marsh Lane, Solihull.

Marie Curie helps people with any illness they are likely to die from including Alzheimer’s (and other forms of dementia), heart, liver, kidney and lung disease, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s, and advanced cancer.

The money raised also funds the charity’s free support line and webchat, which is available to anyone with an illness they’re likely to die from and those close to them. It offers practical and emotional support on everything from symptom management and day-to-day care to financial information and bereavement support.

Samuel Murphy, Marie Curie community fundraiser for West Midlands said:  “We want you to get together with your communities, whether that be friends, family, or colleagues to share some festive joy whilst raising vital funds, for a vital service.

“Christmas can be challenging for many, and we know many homes are affected by the cost of living.

“We appreciate every donation, of any size.

“For families experiencing dying, death, or bereavement, Christmas can often feel overwhelming, so we want to make sure our Hospice, Hospice Care at Home and free Information and Support services are there to spread care, comfort, and joy for even more people in the West Midlands this Christmas.”
