Letter: Marie Curie appeals for daffodil help

Marie Curie’s largest campaign, the Great Daffodil Appeal, is taking place in March, and we are currently looking for volunteers to help with our Daffodil collections in Whitby.

Marie Curie is the leading charity providing care to people with any terminal illness in their own homes in Whitby. In addition to this the charity designs and advises on end of life services, and all Marie Curie services are completely free of charge.

Marie Curie is appealing for people in Whitby to donate their time to collect for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal this March.

The charity needs volunteers to encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin.

The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses care for people with a terminal illness in their own home so they can spend more time with the people they love.

The Great Daffodil Appeal makes it possible for Marie Curie Nurses to provide free hands-on care for people with a terminal illness.

We need as many people as possible to donate their time to help us make sure everyone is wearing a daffodil pin, so we can continue providing this vital care for local people.

As well as local volunteer collectors, Marie Curie will be supported by the Lions Clubs of the British Isles and Ireland in March, with hundreds of collections being held by Lions Club members across the country.

To volunteer to collect for Marie Curie call 01904 755260 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil.
