Members of Grantham Lions Club have backed Marie Curie Cancer Care nurses after hearing about an improved service by the charity.
Members heard at their latest meeting from Marie Curie community fundraiser Charlotte Jackson about a new rapid response service for terminally ill patients and their families.
Nurses will now be available under a pilot scheme from 3pm Friday to Monday. They are currently on duty from 10pm to 7am.
Grantham Lions president Keith Dowsett presented Charlotte Jackson with £450 raised at the meeting.
