Marie Curie

Hello my name is Jessica Herrington and I am the local community fundraise for Marie Curie in North Staffordshire. I hope this message finds you well. Here at Marie Curie we are now approaching our Great Daffodil Appeal for March/April 2018 and have lots of different fundraising events that people can get involved in happening up and down the country!

During the Month of March we are asking people to ‘Step Into Spring’ completing 10,000 steps every day (that’s a total of nearly 150 miles!) in order to raise awareness and vital funds to provide care and support to those who are living with a terminal illness and their families in North Staffordshire. It would be brilliant if Biddulph U3a would consider getting involved. We hope that step into spring will have people across the country pounding the pavements throughout the month, sponsored and supported by their friends and family.

I have attached some links below about both the event and other local fundraising activities you could try.
