Football pundit backs society to hit £1m goal

Marie Curie Ambassador Chris Kamara is backing a Yorkshire Building Society football fundraiser in Market Weighton, which the society hopes will shoot it towards its £1 million target for the Hour of Need campaign.

The Society’s agency, at The Mortgage Advice Centre, on the High Street, will be inviting customers and the public to become fundraising fans and support Marie Curie on Friday 1 July.

There will be a football sweepstake and a guess the football sweets in a jar competition with every £20 funding one hour of Marie Curie nursing care.

Football pundit Chris Kamara, said: “There has been some unbelievable fundraising happening for Marie Curie, thanks to Yorkshire Building Society’s Hour of Need campaign. Customers and colleagues have so far helped to raise a fantastic £900,000 and with continued support, we can help them reach their £1 million goal.”
