    As part of ITV Text Santa, Marie Curie will take centre stage on the channel's lunchtime TV show, Loose Women.

    This LIVE show will feature staff 'taking over' the presenting panel including Marie Curie Nurse, Ann Brady, Sales & Partnerships Manager and Helper volunteer, Ann Hannan, Director of Nursing, Dee Sissons and Helper volunteer Sheila Cook. The studio audience will also be made up of Marie Curie staff, volunteers and supporters. 

    Hosting the show alongside Marie Curie representatives will be Gloria Hunniford, Linda Robson, Andrea McLean and Jane Moore. Gloria, Linda and Andrea visited our Hampstead hospice in preparation for the show and Andrea also filmed with one of our Helper volunteers.

    Linda Robson has experience of our care directly after her mum, who had cancer and dementia, was looked after in our Hampstead hospice for five months in 2012. Gloria Hunniford has also been a big supporter of the charity and the foundation she set up in memory of her daughter, Caron Keating, has made donations to the Marie Curie Hospice, Belfast. 

    The show airs at 12.30pm on Thurs 4th Dec on ITV1 and can also be viewed on ITV Player.
