Liz Howlett, Yorkshire Fundraising Manager at Marie Curie, said;

“Marie Curie nurses work across North & East Yorkshire to provide compassionate and expert care that helps to reassure families and enables them to get some much-needed rest.”

“Last year we provided over 51,000 hours of care across North Yorkshire, York and East Riding. But we still need to do more; one in four don’t get the care and support they need.”

“We don’t think that’s good enough. We know more and more want to die at home but caring for a loved one at home is a challenge for many families.”

“Accessing the right care and support at the right time can a huge difference and can prevent distressing emergency hospital admissions.”

“We’re delighted to have been awarded this donation from which will help us to make it easier for living with a terminal illness to access the right support at the right time.”

“We can’t provide this care and support for living with a terminal illness without your help. So a big thanks to everyone for voting for Marie Curie.”

“Your support means we can help make sure more people facing a terminal illness in the year ahead, won’t be doing so alone.”
