Homebase raises £1.55m for Marie Curie Nurses

  • Comment
Homebase staff and customers have raised a total of £1.55m in fundraising for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

This is the result of two years of fundraising across the UK in the ‘No Place Like Home’ campaign – Homebase’s first official UK charity partnership.

Around £51,000 was raised through the purchase of bulbs of ‘Choice’, a new variety of daffodil named especially for the charity, £67,000 through Marie Curie Cancer Care trolley keyrings and £18,000 from potted Tete a Tete daffodils.

The money raised will help Marie Curie Cancer Care provide care to the terminally ill, allowing them to spend their final days in their own homes.

Rachel Backshall, head of corporate development at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: ‘The amount Homebase staff and customers have raised is a magnificent achievement and will help us make a real difference to terminally ill people and their families. I would like to thank everyone for their fantastic efforts.

‘Everyone should be very proud of this result – £1.55m will fund 77,500 hours of home nursing in the UK,’ she added.
