Norwich & Peterborough (N&P) Building Society has said thanks a million to people in Spalding who helped raise more than £1 million for Marie Curie.

The £1 million was the target in the society’s Hour of Need campaign.

The society’s branch in the Sheep Market has raised an impressive £1,527 towards the target since the start of the campaign in 2014.

Every £20 funds one hour of Marie Curie nursing care, so the money raised in Spalding alone has funded more than 76 hours of Marie Curie nursing care.

N&P is part of Yorkshire Building Society, which says its Hour of Need campaign is the most successful fundraising drive in its history.

Colleagues from the society have taken part in a variety of fundraising activities, including riding 190km in branch on exercise bikes, stepper machine challenges and even set a new world record for the largest cream tea party in multiple locations.
