A COMMUNITY fundraising event in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care is being held in Saffron Walden next month.

Lady Sylvia Morrow will be opening her beautiful gardens and having a hog roast on Saturday July 4 from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at Broadacres, Seven Devils Lane.

Lady Morrow's decision comes as a 'thank you' to Marie Curie Cancer Care for the care her husband received by nurse and friend, Anne Harlow.

She said: "Anne made such a difference to us, besides the wonderful care she gave my husband. She liaised between the doctors on our behalf and told us what to expect at such a difficult time for us all."

Lady Morrow has donated the hog roast and the drinks for the event, and there will also be a raffle. Tickets cost £20 per adult and £10 for under-16s, which includes food and drink.

To purchase tickets contact Anne Hillion at Marie Curie Cancer Care's Essex Fundraising Office on 01920- 468956 or anne.hillion@mariecurie.org.uk

There are 61 Marie Curie nurses and health care assistants working in Essex. Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their loved ones.
