This morning, the L6th CS Committee held an assembly about the wonderful work of their charity, Marie Curie Cancer Care, and the plethora of events they have planned for us.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is a charitable organisation named after the physicist and chemist Marie Curie who died of aplastic anemia in 1934. Founded in 1948, the charity works to provide nursing care at home and in hospices for terminally ill patients. They also support the work of Cancer Research UK. This year, they will help 29 000 people in their 9 hospices. Their nurses spend a combined 1,200,00 hours a year working to help people in their final days and hours of life.
Marie Curie Cancer Care needs to raise £10 000 every hour of every day to sustain this vital work. We can all do our part to help them to do this by supporting this year’s L6th Charity Week from the 18th to the 21st of March.
