Launch of Daffodil Appeal

Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal is launching in Pocklington on Friday and the charity is asking local people to make a donation and wear a daffodil pin to support people with terminal illnesses.

The Great Daffodil Appeal runs throughout March and is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser. All the funds raised from the appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Natalie Atherley, Community Fundraiser, said: “We need everyone in Pocklington to get behind the appeal by donating and wearing one of our daffodil pins during March.

“Every penny you can give is vital in helping Marie Curie Nurses provide more care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes, as well as emotional support for their families.”

Daffodil pins can be picked up from Marie Curie volunteer collectors, local stores and Marie Curie Shops throughout March.

There are also lots of other Great Daffodil Appeal collections happening in local areas that you can still get 
involved in. Contact the details below for more information.
