The Marie Curie Outer Hebrides Fundraising Group will be holding a meeting for local fundraisers and anyone interested in joining their efforts on Thursday 27th August at 6.30pm in the Bethesda Hospice, Springfield Road, Stornoway.

The meeting will be discussing the forthcoming year’s fundraising plans and there will be an update on the deployment within the islands of the Marie Curie nurses who have now completed their training.  

Group chairperson Mr John Masterson said: “This is an important time for the Islands fundraising group and we are hoping to build on the good work that has been done, particularly in the provision of specially-trained nurses who are able to provide specialist care for local people.”

All interested parties are welcome at the meeting and further information can be had from Mr Masterson on 01859 530463 or 07788 940222.
