Get behind the daffodil

Published on: 29 Jan 2018

MARIE Curie is appealing for people in Downend to ‘get behind the daffodil’ by volunteering to collect donations for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal this February and March.

The charity needs volunteers to encourage people in the local community to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin. 

The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help Marie Curie nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones at home in Bristol. 

The appeal is now in its 32nd year and has raised more than £74 million since 1986.

Helen Isbell, community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, said: "The Great Daffodil Appeal is our biggest annual fundraising campaign, making it possible for Marie Curie nurses to give care and support when people need it most. 

"Every year millions of people across the UK show their support for our work by simply giving a donation to wear a daffodil pin."
