Marie Curie Cancer Care's Great Daffodil Appeal

From Sutton Parish Council

Marie Curie Cancer Care is appealing for people to donate an hour of their time this March, to collect for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March.

The charity needs volunteer collectors to encourage people in the local community to wear a daffodil pin and give a donation during March. The money raised locally will support the work of the local Marie Curie Nursing Service.

So be part of something Great. Each March, thousands of people take to the streets to collect vital funds for the Great Daffodil Appeal and there are collections near you that you can get involved in.

Local Fundraiser Kyla Collins said, "This year we're asking people to join us and play a part in our Great Daffodil Appeal by simply encouraging people in your area to give a donation for a Marie Curie daffodil pin. Whether you're new to collecting or an old hand, we'll help you get the most out of your day and your collection tin. Every penny you raise will make a great difference to people in their final hours. Collecting is great fun, some of our collectors get dressed up and wear our wonderful yellow hats, some come along with friends. You always meet lots of people and so many people approach you to tell you about the invaluable support they’ve received from Marie Curie Nurses and you feel like you are really making a difference."

Street and store collections take place throughout March across the area and Marie Curie need lots of volunteers to help. Donating just one or two hours of your time to the appeal will allow Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes in this area.
