THE MARIE Curie charity is holding a collection day in Beverley this Saturday to raise funds for its care, support and campaigning work for people living with terminal illness and for those close to them. A collection at Morrisons in Beverley recently raised more than £1,750 and fundraisers are hoping for more support from the local community on the 25th. 

Fundraiser Amelia Forrest told Beverley FM that last year Marie Curie nurses and health care assistants delivered 101,117 hours of care, enabling people to die at home with their families around them: £20 pays for an hour of expert care and support in the home; £41 buys a Marie Curie nurse her uniform; £500 pays to train a nurse or assistant.

The charity is looking for a fundraising organiser in Beverley and anyone interested in this role or in finding out more about fundraising can contact Amelia on 077328 25903 or email:

BEVERLEY Customer Service Centre in Cross Street is open again from today after being temporarily relocated to the Treasure House on Champney Road following a late-night incident in which a car caused extensive damage to the building. All usual facilities, including those to make payments, will be available for use.

HULL ANIMAL Welfare Trust has made an urgent appeal for more donations of food, saying collection bins at East Yorkshire supermarkets are now often empty. Trustee Sue Sewell blamed the situation on the cost of living crisis and said:”People can’t afford to feed their children let alone dogs.”
