History of Marie Curie
Barbara Graham is going to give a talk on the history of Marie Curie and the charity that is named after her. (August 23rd).
Barbara will be running a new series of lectures in 2018-19 as a result of a partnership between Strathclyde University's Centre for Lifelong Learning and Ayrshire College on the College's Kilmarnock campus. Further details can be found in the CLL prospectus and website at https://www.strath.ac.uk/studywithus/centreforlifelonglearning/shortcourses/ Information will also soon be available on the College's website at http://www1.ayrshire.ac.uk/course-search/ Print copies will also be available in the College.
She will teach the first two courses: Stranger than Fiction - the Lives of Authors; and Heroines of the First World War. These meetings will take place from 6.30 to 8.30 p.m. - with a break for coffee of course! The starting time is early, but I don't have control over that. It may help to know that the College cafe is available for people who want a snack before evening classes begin.
Please note that bookings must be made via Strathclyde's website or by phone at the web address and phone number given on the flyer.
The Marie Curie Charity
Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last.
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.
Marie Curie has been around for as long as the NHS, and over the last 70 years has been there for hundreds of thousands of families and will be here for you and your family when you may feel like no-one else is, to help you cope when you don’t know how.
Marie Curie Nurses care for you in your home, when you need them most, day or night. Marie Curie hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK, offering specialist round-the-clock care. And trained volunteers and advisers are there for you on 0800 090 2309 with practical information and support when you don’t know what to do next or just need to talk. Marie Curie is by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.
But our ageing population means more and more people are living with a terminal illness, often with more complex needs. Most families in the UK will find themselves grappling with these issues in the coming years. Even now, one in four people doesn’t get the care and support they need at the end of their life. Marie Curie don’t think that’s good enough. No one should have to face the most difficult time in their lives by themselves. They are determined to do more, for more of the people who need us. To make that possible Marie Curie urgently need your support, because every day matters when you’re living with a terminal illness.
To find out more about our services, or how you can support Marie Curie locally, visit contact Elma Mitchell, Community Fundraiser on 07798 638151, email email@example.com visit www.mariecurie.org.uk . To get help from a Marie Curie nurse, please speak with your district nurse or GP.
