A Marie Curie Cancer Care volunteer from Gildersome is appealing to the local community to become part of a new group for the charity.
Mary Johnson, a retired nurse, had a 25 year career in palliative care and has seen first-hand what a difference the care makes to a patient and their family.
She has been supporting the charity since retirement through coordinating collections and is currently helping the charity spread the word about the new Morley and Gildersome fundraising group.
The charity is holding its first meeting on Wednesday February 19 at 7pm at Asda Morley to start a new fundraising group in the area to fund local nursing.
To be involved, attend the meeting or to find out more, call Katie on 01274 386190 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
