Make a splash for nurses

TV presenter Gail Porter and Duncan Goodhew, the Olympic gold medallist, launched the Marie Curie Swimathon 2011, which will be held in pools across the UK between April 8 and 10.

Anyone from Calderdale completing a swimathon will see their money boosting the Courier appeal to raise 80,000 to help fund local Marie Curie nurses.

Their vital work allows patients who are terminallyill in Calderdale to die at home.

To donate to our appeal, phone Marie Curie on 01274 337034.
