MARIE CURIE is in urgent need of help from kind-hearted Silhillians.
As the first daffodils of the year begin to poke their heads above the ground, the Solihull Observer’s media partner – terminal illness charity Marie Curie Solihull – is urgently calling on local residents to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal.
This March, just two hours handing out daffodil pins in return for a donation can help more Marie Curie nurses be there for people living with a terminal illness.
Among the nurses’ vital work they visit patients in the comfort of their own homes, meaning they can spend their precious last few days surrounded by family and friends.
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.
Amy McNaughton-Brown, community fundraiser for the charity, said: “We are calling on the people of Solihull 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 Nurses provide vitals hands on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.”
Help make every daffodil pin count by signing up to volunteer online at www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil or by calling 0800 304 7025.
