Marie Curie

Marie Curie were awarded a small grant award in September 2018, after being nominated by Peter Scrivener.

Marie Curie helps people and their families living with a terminal illness make the most of the time they have together by delivering free, expert care, emotional support and advice.

The £2,500 donation award will fund a much needed facilities upgrade to ensure the highest standards of infection control are maintained as expected at all Marie Curie Hospices. The sluice room, where higher risk waste is processed, requires a new frame and inward opening door to minimise the risk of infection and cross contamination. This will further protect patients, staff, volunteers and visitors from associated risks.

Kimberley Blanc, Major Gifts Manager at Marie Curie, said: "We are very grateful to have received a donation from the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation towards this work at our hospice. The help of our supporters is crucial in making sure the hospices are of the highest standard, so that we are able to continue to provide high-quality end of life care to patients and their loved ones.

The whole of the Wasps legends squad epitomised everything rugby stands for - community spirit, great banter, competition on the pitch and the making of some lasting friendships.
