Marie Curie: Our national charity of 2015
In 2015, the employees of Potterton Commercial have voted Marie Curie as our National Charity for the year. A fundraising target of £50,000 has been set and we are looking forward to raising money in all sorts of innovative ways for such a worthwhile cause.
Marie Curie is the UK's leading providers of care to the terminally ill. This care is provided either in the patient's own home or in one of Marie Curie's nine dedicated hospices across the country. They are also a leader in research and invest significantly in finding the best ways to care for people with a terminal illness.
Marie Curie offers all services completely free of charge and therefore the fundraising and donations that they receive are vital. Around 70% of the charity's income is in the form of donations and the remainder is funded by the NHS.
