MARIE Curie Cancer Care is seeking supporters in the Denby Dale, Emley, Shelley and Shepley areas to become involved in a new fundraising group.

Local community fundraiser, Claire Priestwood, said: “We need different types of people who can offer different things to help us raise money for cancer care. You might be great at organising small or large events like coffee mornings, you might be good with money and figures, you might be able to take minutes or put a rota together or be happy to speak in public about the service that Marie Curie provides. Being in one of our friendly fundraising groups is great fun and you’ll be helping to raise even more money for the local Marie Curie Nursing Service in Huddersfield.”

Anyone who wants to find out more, or wants to offer their time and skills to fundraise in the HD8 area is invited to go along to a pre-group meeting next Monday, July 9 at 7pm at Emley Methodist Church Schoolroom.
