Working in partnership with Marie Curie
Dignity raised £59,000 during 2015 for its corporate charity, Marie Curie and has raised £274,000 since January 2012.
This extremely worthwhile organisation provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal illnesses the choice of dying at home or in a specialist charity hospice supported by their families. Marie Curie cares for approximately 30,000 patients every year across the whole of the UK. There are nine Marie Curie hospices located in Belfast, Bradford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hampstead London, Liverpool, Penarth and Solihull. Each Dignity branch and crematoria has been linked with their local Marie Curie fundraising office so that the money that is raised will care for local patients in their community.
Fundraising initiatives have included charity car washes and taking part in sponsored walks, sky dives and fun runs. Dignity also raised money for Marie Curie by taking part in national campaigns such as The Great Daffodil Appeal, where branches sold the charity’s lapel badges and The Blooming Great Tea Party where visitors could purchase hot drinks, snacks and home made cakes for a charitable donation.
