Small Cirencester charity Marie Curie Cancer Care was recently awarded over £500 but would like more people to get involved
A SMALL, determined charity received over £500 from Waitrose’ donation scheme in Cirencester.
Community Matters, the scheme where customers can choose to put a token into three boxes, each representing a different charity, awarded the Cirencester branch of Marie Curie Cancer Care £566.
Marie Curie Cancer Care gives terminally ill patients the choice to die at home under the care of a nurse.
The Cirencester branch only has six members and is looking for more to join, especially anyone willing to take on the role of chairman or secretary.
The group has fundraised at the Cotswold Show and the Parish Church fete as well as doing regular collections around town.
“If we had more members, we could do more ambitious fundraising events,” said treasurer Sarah Nelmes. “We’re a small and friendly group. We’d just like to welcome more members.”
The members will be meeting on Wednesday, October 2 at 6.30pm at the Golden Farm Pub in Cirencester Beeches and ask anyone interested in joining the group to come along for an informal get-together.
