MARIE Curie is appealing for people in the Downend area to volunteeR to collect donations for the annual Great Daffodil Appeal this February and March.

The money raised from the appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones at home in South Gloucestershire. The appeal is now in its 32nd year and has raised more than £74 million since 1986.

It’s easy to sign up, whether you have taken part before or you’re doing it for the first time - and families, friends and workmates can sign up to volunteer together.

Helen Isbell , community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Bristol, 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."
