Local MSP ‘delighted’ with progress of Hamilton based group
Marie Curie Hamilton continues to grow from strength to strength as the South Lanarkshire based fundraising and support group welcomed their new members.
Following on from their successful information awareness day, attended by local SNP MSP Christina McKelvie, the group now consists of five members.
Meeting in the Hamilton Museum Café on August 8th, the group will be seeking to recruit more volunteers and raise vital money to provide help and support for those living with a terminal illness.
Commenting on the growth, MSP for Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse, Christina McKelvie said:
“The Marie Curie Hamilton Fundraising Group continues to go from strength to strength, all down to the wonderful activists, staff and volunteers for Marie Curie.
“I was delighted to pop along to their information and awareness meeting earlier this year. It is clear to see the enthusiasm and passion everyone has within their group to provide even more help and resources for those facing a terminal illness.
“I would encourage all my constituents to get involved with Marie Curie, providing help, support and comfort for those who need it most”.
Commenting, Georgia Ramplin, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser added:
“I am so pleased that the Hamilton Fundraising Group is truly up and running, however more pairs of hands are always useful to ensure that we’re supporting Marie Curie Nurses as much as possible in Hamilton.
“If you’d like more information, please do come along to our meeting on 8th August in Hamilton Museum Café, or give me a ring on 07730 619 485”.
