Can you help with the Great Daffodil Appeal this month?

My name is Carrie and I am the Leicestershire Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care.  I am generating support from local community groups for our Great Daffodil Appeal collection that takes place this March.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is appealing for people in Leicestershire to donate their time this March to collect for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal.  The appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser, which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March.

Marie Curie Nurses give free hands-on care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and vital emotional support to their loved ones.  We allow families to make the most of the precious time they have left together.  Given the choice, most of us would want to die at home, surrounded by the people and things we cherish.  Marie Curie Cancer Care makes this possible.  But the sad fact is, every five minutes someone in the UK dies without the care they need at the end of their life. That’s why w urgently need to reach more people.

The money raised in Leicestershire will help local Leicestershire patients and enable Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

If you think that your Women’s Institute would like to be part of the collection this year, then I would love to hear from you.

 Kindest regards
