The end of life charity is encouraging local businesses, employees, groups and families to club together and help ‘Give a Shift’ to local Marie Curie nurses this Christmas.
Donations can be made at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/marie-curie-Lanarkshire.
Due to the pandemic, Marie Curie has had to cancel many of its fundraising events.
This has resulted in the charity losing a substantial amount of revenue, but services are in demand more than ever.
Marie Curie community fundraiser Elma Mitchell said: “This Christmas, we need your help.
“Our nurses, have been here through it all, day and night, seven days a week, caring for people with and without coronavirus, they never stopped.
“We have adapted quickly and our Information and Support line is now open seven days a week with Marie Curie Nurses available over the phone.
“We know it is a difficult time for everyone at the moment , but for those living with a terminal illness it is even more so.
“We need your support to continue to be there for people at their time of need.”
Elma explained that each shift of Marie Curie nursing care costs around £180.
The charity is appealing to local businesses, groups and families to ‘Give a Shift’ this Christmas and help fund as many shifts as possible over the coming weeks.
Elma added: “Let Christmas 2020 be different in a positive way, and make a real difference to those living with a terminal illness, and their families.”
