A NEW fundraising group has launched in the HD8 postcode to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The volunteers met at Emley Methodist Church to celebrate the formal launch of the group before holding their first business meeting to start planning their activities.
They held their first fundraising event, a Blooming Great Tea Party, last Saturday at Emley Methodist Church.
Claire Priestwood, community fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “The new fundraising group will make a huge difference locally by helping to raise the vital funds needed to support Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.”
