JOIN in with our Safe Hands Appeal by doing a supermarket charity collection for Marie Curie Cancer Care this Christmas.

The charity is appealing for kind-hearted people from Leigh, Atherton and Tyldesley to give up a couple of hours to man collection buckets to help the terminally ill this December.

Marie Curie Cancer Care will hold two charity collections at Morrisons in Tyldesley, on Shuttle Street, on Friday, December 16 and Saturday, December 17.

The charity organises a series of collections over the festive season to help care for terminally ill people in their own homes.

The collections also form part of the Leigh Reporter’s Safe Hands Appeal, which aims to raise £86,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care to provide support and care for terminally ill people across Leigh and Wigan.

The £86,000 is the annual cost of providing nurses for patients in the borough,

Marie Curie Cancer Care community fundraiser Siobhan Heffernan said: “We have amazing volunteers across Leigh, Atherton & Tyldesley who give their time to collect, but we always need more volunteers to make sure we don’t miss out on valuable collecting time and valuable donations from festive shoppers.”
