Where your money goes

Patient and nurseThe support we received meant that in 2012-13 more than 38,777 people were given the choice of where and how to spend their final days. They, and we, cannot thank you enough. But please don't stop there.


We need to raise £10,000 every hour of every day to carry on our work

Marie Curie has 2,000 nurses in the UK and last year they worked for 1,300,000 hours caring for terminally ill patients, including half of all cancer patients who die at home.

We also have nine hospices and are the biggest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS. In total, Marie Curie spends over £93 million a year on its charitable activities of providing care as well as on research and development. The figure is overwhelming, but so is the comfort that the money can provide.

Please keep helping us to help even more people. Thank you.

The nurses are such amazing people. They did everything they could for my dad... thanks to all. Mrs C, BradfordOnly had the service for a short time, but it was worth more than you can ever know to us. Mr P, Nottinghamshire
