2015 Easter Eggs to help Marie Curie Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support

2015 Easter Eggs to help Marie Curie Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support

24 March 2015
This year Glasstorm is donating 50% of our glass Easter Egg sales to two very deserving charities Macmillan Cancer Care and Marie Curie Cancer Support. Read below to find out a little more about each charity. Please help us raise as much as we can by giving a beautiful and unusual Easter gift.

MARIE CURIE CANCER CARE IN THE TAIN AND DORNOCH FIRTH AREA

Tain & Dornoch Firth Fundraising Group for Marie Curie Cancer Care was formed in November 2013 raising funds and awareness in the local community.  In it's first year, it raised over £4,000 (money which is retained and spent throughout the Highlands), and the group hopes to exceed that target during 2015.  As well as regular supermarket collections, a major event planned for 20th June is the annual “Blooming Great Tea Party”, which will be held at the Tain Parish Church hall.

Marie Curie Cancer Care gives people with all terminal illnesses the choice to die at home. Marie Curie nurses provide them, and their families, with free hands-on care and emotional support, in their own homes, right until the end. Additionally, Marie Curie provides hospices, offering round-the clock specialist care.

Here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families, Marie Curie offers care, guidance and support free of charge to help them get the most they can from life in the time they have left.

MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life.

At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and we’re here to support you through. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, we’ll be there.

We’ll help you make the choices you need to take back control, so you can start to feel like yourself again. No one should face cancer alone. We want to reach and improve the lives of  every one of those people.
