Staff at branches of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society have stepped up to the mark to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Staff at the Stamford branch in the High Street are holding a prize draw to raise money for Yorkshire Building Society’s Hour of Need campaign, of which Norwich and Peterborough is part.

The money raised will enable Marie Curie Nurses to provide even more vital support for terminally ill people and their families across the UK.

Businesses which have donated prizes include: Marks and Spencer, Morrisons and Stylistics.

Samantha Stevens, manager of the Stamford branch, said: “We are delighted so many local firms have shown their support for our Hour of Need raffle for Marie Curie.”

Tickets cost £1 and the raffle will be drawn on Saturday, April 4.

The Bourne branch in North Street has also been getting involved and staff have raised more than £550.

Colleagues took it in turns to try and accomplish 24,000 steps – a thousand steps for every hour in the day - on a stepper.

The Society is aiming to raise £500,000 by December 2016, which equates to funding an hour of care by a Marie Curie Nurse for every hour of the Hour of Need campaign.
