MARIE CURIE GREAT DAFFODIL APPEAL 2024

Marie Curie nurses work night and day, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support to people living with terminal illness and their loved ones, both at home and in Marie Curie Hospices. They need your help so they can provide expert care and support to even more families. Just £20 will pay for one hour of care in someone’s home. One way to help raise these vital funds is to support the Great Daffodil Appeal.

The Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal bloomed from a small army of volunteers spending their time handing out fresh daffodils and collecting donations in 1986. A few years later, Marie Curie in Liverpool planted daffodils in Sefton Park, which was later renamed the ‘Field of Hope’, in support of those living with terminal illness and loved ones who have died. Daffodil pins then became a popular way for people to show their support and in 2005 the Great Daffodil Appeal was officially launched.

We supported the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal 2023, together we raised enough money for 260 hours of nursing care.

On behalf of all the nurses and staff at Marie Curie, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of Flying Flowers’ customers and staff for supporting this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. Every seven beautiful bunches sold from Flying Flowers’ Great Daffodil Appeal range will fund an hour of nursing care. With your support, we can continue to help people manage their symptoms and get the vital care they need, ensuring a better end of life for all.

Nurse Caty, Marie Curie

WHY ARE DAFFODILS ASSOCIATED WITH MARIE CURIE?

With their cheery yellow heads edging the roads,  daffodils are one of the first signs that spring is on its way and brighter days are coming. A symbol of strength and resilience - stemming from Roman times where they were known to have planted daffodils to remember those who died in battle – Marie Curie has said that their daffodil is a “symbol of unwavering support” for those who need it most.

It’s not only the flower itself that carries meaning. It’s colour yellow is often used to convey warmth and optimism, which highlights the brighter future which Marie Curie are campaigning for every day.
