Marie Curie Cancer Care needs your help!

National charity Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling on Broch folk to get invovled and raise some money.

Marie Curie contacted the Herald to tell the readers of the Fraserburgh Fundraising Group for the charity.

Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for North East Scotland, Carolyn Snedden, told the Herald about the difference people in Fraserbugh could make.

“Group members can make an enormous difference locally by helping to raise the vital funds needed to support Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.”

Whatever is raised here in Fraserburgh will be kept in the Broch which can help some of the Marie Curie Cancer Care nurses who work here and in the surrounding area.

Carolyn added: “The Fraserburgh Fundraising Group promotes fundraising within the local community by organising fundraising activities and collections, encouraging new volunteers to help the charity, as well as supporting Marie Curie’s major fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and Blooming Great Tea Party.”

The group is also hosting a Whole Hog event in Mintlaw. This event that has been running annually elsewhere in Scotland and will be making its debut in Aberdeenshire.

The 10k adventure course takes you through the rugged and beautiful terrain of Aberdeenshire.

Once you’ve completed the course, there will be a hog roast party.

The Whole Hog Mintlaw will take place on Saturday, September 24.

The event is being organised by the Scottish Events Team in conjunction with the local fundraising office

Currently there is no fundraising group in Fraserburgh and Marie Curie Cancer Care is trying to get one set up.

It is looking to invite those interested to go along to a meeting mid-October.
