Why give the Gift of Time?
Over the 12 days of Christmas, around 1,400 Marie Curie Nurses will care for more than 1,900 people in their own homes, delivering nearly 38,000 hours of nursing care, at a cost of around £700,000.
By raffling an extra day off at your Christmas party you'll be helping to pay for vital Marie Curie nursing care at Christmas.
This Christmas, Marie Curie Nurses like Sally will provide invaluable care and support for people living with a terminal illness. Sally talks to us about the care that Marie Curie Nurses provide to the families they support, especially at this time of year. For many people living with a terminal illness, this will be their last Christmas, and Sally explains how our nurses let people make the most of this very special time.
“Marie Curie Nurses make a big difference to families over Christmas. It’s a very difficult time, particularly if your loved one is terminally ill. We are there to give help and support to those families, to enable patients to die in their own homes, surrounded by their loved ones, their pets, their grandchildren, and whoever else is in the house, to make it a very special Christmas for their last one together.”
