Lincoln Marie Curie group reaches £100k fundraising milestone

The Lincoln Marie Curie fundraising group is celebrating after reaching £100,000 in four years.

Marie Curie is the UK’s leading charity for people with a terminal illness and their families, helping them make the most of the time they have together.

The Lincoln group, chaired by former Marie Curie Nurse Robina Cameron, celebrated their success this week.

Marie Curie Nursing Manager Sue Smith joined the group for their celebration to give a talk to the volunteers, thanking them for giving up their time.

The group, with ages ranging from 16 to 86, has been running for four years.

Money raised goes towards the charity’s free nursing service in the county.

Robina Cameron, Chair, Marie Curie Lincoln fundraising group, said: “It’s been quite emotional, as many of us in the group have a personal connection to the cause, but we’ve had a wonderful celebration and we’re already looking forward to our next event together at Boulthan Park Gala.”

Gary Burr, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie, added: “The Lincoln fundraising group are a fantastic asset to Marie Curie and we want to thank them for giving up their time to support the charity.”
