Members of the Cleethorpes cancer collaborative recently donated £50 to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The money came from the proceeds of a fashion show held at St Andrews Methodist Church, Cleethorpes earlier in the year by the collaborative team. The show aimed to help raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of cancer.
Julie Grimmer, cancer programme manager, said: “We have had a lot of success with our collaborative programme and it is great that we can help a good cause like Marie Curie Cancer Care while promoting the importance of detecting cancer symptoms early.”
The money will help more Marie Curie nurses to provide free care to patients with terminal cancer in the comfort of their own homes.
Penny Parkinson, Marie Curie nursing service team leader, said: “We are extremely grateful to the cancer collaborative for this kind donation.
“Every minute of every day, someone is being cared for by a Marie Curie nurse or healthcare assistant. This donation will help continue to make it possible for someone to live their last days at home, rather than go into hospital.”
The cancer collaborative is always looking for enthusiastic new team members of all ages to help raise awareness among the general public. For further information about the collaborative, please contact Julie Grimmer or Martin Wakefield on (01472) 232261.
