Society asks Southport to give the gift if time this Christmas

Yorkshire Building Society colleagues ask the public to give the gift of time for Marie Curie this Christmas

YORKSHIRE Building Society is asking the community in Southport to give the gift of time this Christmas for its final 'Hour of Need' campaign activity in aid of Marie Curie. The Society's Hour of Need campaign was launched in 2014 with the original aim of raising ?500,000 by the end of December 2016. Thanks to the strength of support this was reached early with the Society now more than doubling this figure, with the current total standing at more than ?1million. Every ?20 raised funds 1 hour of Marie Curie nursing care and customers and colleagues at the Yorkshire Building Society branch in Southport have so far funded 57 hours of care by contributing ?1,153 to the campaign.  To get in the seasonal spirit and give the campaign a festive farewell, the branch, on London Street, will be hosting a Christmas party event, on Wednesday, 14 December 2016, where people can enjoy some festive treats from the Society. People can show their support for Marie Curie and spread a little festive cheer by buying a set of the charity's stylish Christmas tree decorations with all proceeds supporting the Hour of Need campaign. The branch is also running a guess the weight of a Christmas Pudding competition. Lola Rowe, a Marie Curie Hospice Nurse, said:- "I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the customers and members of staff at Yorkshire Building Society who have contributed so far to the Hour of Need fundraising campaign for Marie Curie. Through their donations myself and my colleagues have been able to provide even more support to people in their hour of need."

Rachel Coulthard, assistant branch manager of the Southport branch of Yorkshire Building Society, said:- "We're so proud that customers in Southport have helped us to make this the Society's most successful ever national fundraising campaign. We hope our customers will call in to help support our final Hour of Need campaign event and help us give the gift of time this Christmas to terminally ill people and their families across the country."
