A Yorkshire Building Society fundraising campaign has raised enough to support 10,000 hours of Marie Curie nursing care in just six months.
The Hour of Need campaign was launched last June and has raised £200,000 to pay for support for those with terminally illnesses and their families.
The Society is aiming to raise £500,000 by December 2016, which equates to funding an hour of care by a Marie Curie nurse for every hour of the campaign.
Lola Rowe, a Marie Curie Hospice nurse, said: “I’d like to say thank you to all the Yorkshire Building Society colleagues and customers who have donated to the Hour of Need fundraising campaign for Marie Curie so far. It is thanks to their fundraising that I and my colleagues can provide support to even more people in their hours of need.”
Yorkshire Building Society’s Community Partnership Manager, Sasha Pauley, said: “This will have a real impact on terminally ill people and their families in providing Marie Curie nursing support.”
