Solihull's fun and wacky fundraisers called on to help Marie Curie

Solihull Editorial 19th Mar, 2024   0

GO YELLOW and do something wonderful and wacky – that’s the message from Marie Curie who is calling for Silhillinas to support its Great Daffodil Appeal.

The end of life charity is calling on residents to paint the borough yellow with a yellow dress up day at work, or a yellow themed bake sale to raise funds so it can help and support patients and loved ones.

The Great Daffodil Appeal encourages everyone to wear their iconic daffodil pins and donate to the end-of-life charity through the month of March to help Marie Curie deliver its expert end of life care and support.

Marie Curie’s flagship fundraiser, supported by headline partner Superdrug, raises much needed funds for Marie Curie Nurses and healthcare professionals to provide expert support and hospice care at its hospice in Solihull.

It also funds the charity’s free support line and webchat, which is available to anyone with an illness they’re likely to die from and those close to them. It offers practical and emotional support on everything from symptom management and day-to-day care to financial information and bereavement support.

Samuel Murphy, Marie Curie fundraiser for West Midlands, said: “We’re now in our 38th year of the Great Daffodil Appeal but every year we are overwhelmed by the creativity and dedication of our wonderful supporters who fundraise for us.”
