The Chairman has chosen two charities to support during her civic year.
Registered Charity Number: 207994
Marie Curie helps people living with a terminal illness, and their families, make the most of the time they have together by delivering hands-on nursing care and expert hospice care, emotional support, research and guidance to improve the way care is provided in the UK.
They are the UK’s leading charity for people with a terminal illness and their families. They are best known for providing hands-on nursing care day and night in people’s homes and expert, round-the-clock care in their nine hospices, but they support communities in many other ways.
Their Helper service offers people regular support at home from a trained volunteer and delivers a range of information and support services, including confidential information and support Line. They also fund vital research into improving the care that people receive at the end of life, and campaign to ensure that everyone gets the care and support they need, wherever they live.
By supporting Marie Curie, you are funding care and support for people living with a terminal illness, and their families, across the UK. Marie Curie believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel.
Witham Choral Society
Registered charity number: 261704
Witham Choral Society, or Witham Choral as it is known today, was formed in 1957 and is a friendly, non-auditioned choir. As a charity, its aim is to provide the opportunity for all those who wish to sing our repertoire to learn about classical music and to perform in the local community. In this way we also enable our audiences to appreciate the riches of some of the very best of choral music in their own neighbourhood.
The choir is also a social group which enables our members to regularly meet people with similar interests. Inevitably this leads to a great deal of mutual support and friendship and enriches the lives of all those involved.
