Inner Wheel ladies raise £3,181 for Cancer Care

A TURN on the catwalk by Montrose Inner Wheel members has raised more than £3,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The ladies organised a fashion show, in conjunction with Chique Boutique, which was held in Taylor’s Auction Rooms in November and realised £3,181.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is a leading provider of end of life care in Scotland.

The charity has hospices in Glasgow and Edinburgh and more than 250 Marie Curie Nurses working in communities across the country.

This year Marie Curie Nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals will care for more than 5,000 people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in Scotland as well as provide support for their families.

The care provided is free of charge and available to anyone with a terminal illness, not just cancer.

As a world leader in researching better ways to care for patients at the end of life, the charity also campaigns for better end of life care in Scotland and believes that everyone should have the choice to die at home.

Marie Curie Cancer Care need to raise more than £6.5 million per year to fund our hospice and nursing care in Scotland, which is also supported by local health boards.
