Martin House Visit

The Mayoress of Morley, Lisa Finnigan along with the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor Roger and Christine Bell visited Martin House as part of a project to raise funds from the Mayor’s Charity to support the Leeds based children’s hospice.  The hospice, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, provides support service for children and young people suffering from terminal illnesses.

Councillor Roger Bell said “It was a truly moving experience to visit Martin House and to hear about the excellent work they undertake to support families going through difficult times.  They are an inspiration to us all.”

The Morley Mayor’s charity fundraising this year is focused on raising funds for both Martin House and the Forget Me Not children’s hospice, based in Huddersfield which also supports local families.

Mayoress Lisa Finnigan said “We are supporting both hospices with the important services they offer families who have children with terminal illnesses.  They do tremendous work with families who are being challenged by experiences which we can barely imagine, providing support at the most difficult times in their lives.  We have charity events to support both organisations, such as a curry night and a Christmas event to raise the funds they need to continue their fabulous work and we know Morley folk will continue to given generously towards these excellent causes.”
