Monday morning feature: Marie Curie encourages Paisley residents to ‘hop on-board’ as big yellow bus comes to town

23rd Jun 2019

A striking yellow branded Marie Curie bus will be in Paisley town centre from Monday 24 June until Saturday 29 June inviting people to hop on-board and find out more about the charity which supports people living with terminal illness. The bus will be at the corner of Moss Street at Paisley Cross.

Renfrewshire Provost Lorraine Cameron and Marie Curie representatives will be visiting the Paisley FM 107.5 studio on Monday morning, 24 June to talk to presenter Mike McLean about the Marie Curie charity work.

Open between 10.00am until 5.00pm, visitors will be able to hop onboard the bus and donate to the charity and meet Marie Curie representatives including volunteer members of the local fundraising group. The bus visit coincides with Marie Curie’s summer fundraising campaign, Blooming Great Tea Party, which encourages everyone to get together with friends and family to hold a tea party.

Research shows that one in four people in the UK miss out on the vital care they need at the end of life often due to lack of awareness of who can benefit from it, how to access it, when they can receive it, and gaps in services. For anyone unable to visit the bus in Paisley town centre at the corner of Moss Street, Paisley Cross, should they need support or any questions about terminal illness, including clinical support, call the Marie Curie Information and Support Line free on 0800 090 2309 or visit
