Former MP will give a talk at a Marie Curie fundraising event in The Guildhall next month

Former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe is coming to Axminster to give a talk in aid of Marie Curie.

The event, in support of the Marie Curie nurses, is on Sunday June 19th, at 2.30pm in the Guildhall, Axminster, and will be followed by a Marie Curie ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’.

Sandy Sinclair, Chairman of the Axminster Fundraising Group, said ‘Marie Curie nurses who specialise in terminal care, looked after my wife in her last days, and I am particularly grateful to Ann Widdecombe for supporting the cause, and no doubt providing some controversial opinions for the occasion.’

Tickets at £10 are available from the Archway Bookshop or by phone on 01297 33655.

* Marie Curie is one of the UK’s largest charities. The charity is best known for its network of Marie Curie Nurses working in the community to provide end-of-life care, totally free for patients in their own homes. All money raised within the Devon area is spent within the Devon area. Employing more than 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals, it expects to provide care to around 27,000 terminally ill patients this year.
