Community Fundraiser Hayley Revell said: “Joining the Newton Aycliffe Fundraising Group is a wonderful way to play an important role in the work of a national charity at a local level, make new friendships and engage with your community

“We’re really excited and it will make a huge difference locally by helping to raise awareness of the free care Marie Curie provides to people with terminal illnesses in the local area.”

A meeting where people can find out more will be held on Thursday March 17 at 6.30pm in Tesco Superstore.
