Tasty treats were on offer for all during a charity coffee morning at the Blue Dolphin Holiday Park in Filey. The event was held in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and was organised by Lucy Jackson and Victoria Durham. The park has supported Children in Need in the past and decided to raise money for Marie Curie this year as the cause is close to staff members’ hearts. Cashier Tamla Wiley said the event raised £65.18 and was a great success. She added: “It went really well. We had a few owners coming in along with team members and holidaymakers. People baked and brought in their own cupcakes and biscuits. Some of the team members’ children also helped bake and decorate cakes.”

Marie Curie nurses work in the homes of terminally ill patients across the UK, providing practical care and support.

During 2012-13, the charity’s nurses provided more than 1.3 million hours of nursing to 30,080 patients, along with support for their families.

The care and support is provided free of charge as the charity relies on donations. Pictured serving up the goodies, from left, are Victoria Durham, Lorraine Tedds and Lucy Jackson. Picture by Neil Silk 143908
