Marple, Marie Curie urgently needs YOUR help!
As we see the first daffodils of the year bloom, terminal illness charity Marie Curie is asking people of Marple to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal in March. Volunteering just two hours of your time to give out daffodil pins in return for a donation can help the local Marie Curie services for those people living with a terminal illness and their family.
The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, which takes places throughout March, but the charity needs people to sign up to volunteer now.
Your local collection is at Asda on Friday 24th March 2017 and it would be great to see this collection full and busy with local collectors. There is also a huge Manchester Street Collection on the 3rd and 4th March which is guaranteed to have a great atmosphere.
Julie Peters, community fundraiser for Stockport said: “We are calling on the people of Marple to help us make every daffodil count this year. All you have to do is encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, it’s that simple. So round up your friends, family and colleagues and together we can help Marie Curie provide free confidential and practical support to more people affected by terminal illness who need it and research into better ways of caring for people living with a terminal illness.”
Last year we supported over 50,000 people affected by terminal illness and we want to reach more people affected by terminal illness. Make Every Daffodil Count and volunteer to support now: mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil or call 0800 304 7025.
