Marie Curie is encouraging local people to join the South Tyneside fundraising group and make a difference, all while meeting new people in the area, having fun and helping to secure the on-going support delivered by Marie Curie.

The charity said by being a fundraising group member, volunteers will become a key component in a passionate team, devoted to raising crucial funds and as much awareness as possible.

With other group members, they will organise collections, fundraising events and other awareness activities.
