I Support Marie Curie

Marie Curie gives care and support to people living with terminal illness – including cancer, dementia and Parkinson’s – and their families when they need it most.

This support includes treating or managing pain and other symptoms with medicines, therapies and other specialist approaches – as well as giving emotional support.

Back in 2015, in memory of my late Mother-in-law, Kate McCusker, I joined a team of volunteers to raise money for Marie Curie by cycling the length of Ireland (approx 625km) from Malin Head to Mizen.

As a group, we raised over £112,000 - I managed to raise £2,527.33 myself!

The funds we raised mean more people can be cared for in their own home by a Marie Curie Nurse. And this year, I hope to raise even more money for Marie Curie

2019 Charity - Marie Curie - Target £2,000

For 2019, I am again pleased to support the fantastic work of Marie Curie. I have set myself a target to raise another £2,000 - please help me to smash this goal!

I will be organising many events throughout 2019 to raise money for the charity with it culminating in another epic cycle challenge with Marie Curie - The Channel to Med Challenge - over 1,000km from the North to South of France, taking place in September.

Channel to Med Cycle 2019

In September 2019, I am joining a team of volunteers to cycle from Ouistreham, on the English Channel coast in Northern France to Marseillan Plage on the Mediterranean coast of Southern France - a journey of over 1,000km with around 34,000 feet of climbing - my toughest cycle challenge yet!

Where your Money goes

Founded in 1948, Marie Curie is a registered charity, here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. They offer expert care, guidance and support to help them get the most from the time they have left.

2,160 Marie Curie Nurses across the UK make it possible for people living with any terminal illness to die peacefully at home, surrounded by the people that mean the most to them. And nine Marie Curie Hospices, including one in Belfast, offer round-the-clock, expert care and support, in a friendly, welcoming environment.

It costs Marie Curie around £60,000 per day to run its nine hospices across the UK. This requires an army of dedicated volunteers and relies heavily on support from individuals, local groups and businesses.
