Marie CurieCharity thanks people in Edinburgh for supporting the Great Daffodil Appeal


Marie Curie Nurses offer their thanks to everyone in the area for helping to make the charity’s appeal a great success.

Since Marie Curie Cancer Care’s month-long Great Daffodil Appeal launched on 1 March, volunteer collectors have been out in force throughout Edinburgh to encourage people to make a donation and wear the charity’s daffodil pin to support people with a terminal illness.

All the funds raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the Edinburgh Marie Curie hospice.

Paul Thompson, Head of Regional Fundraising for Marie Curie, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Edinburgh who has supported Marie Curie and helped to make this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal such a big success. The appeal simply wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful volunteer collectors who tirelessly encouraged people to wear a daffodil pin, as well as everyone who generously made a donation to support people with a terminal illness. The funds raised will make a very significant difference, helping Marie Curie Nurses provide more care to people with terminal illnesses and their families at the time when they most need support.”
