We’re proud to support Marie Curie as our charitable partner. Learn more about the vital work Marie Curie is doing to support families affected by any terminal illness, grief and bereavement and how you can get involved.
We supported the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal 2023, together we raised enough money for 260 hours of nursing care.
ABOUT THE MARIE CURIE GREAT DAFFODIL APPEAL
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.
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 daffodils are “a positive, life-affirming symbol”, and we couldn’t agree more.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
There are hundreds of ways for you to get involved and show your support for Marie Curie. Whether you are simply buying a daffodil pin during the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal or running a fundraiser, every penny counts and will help Marie Curie Nurses to continue to provide expert care.
SEND A THOUGHTFUL BOUQUET
Brighten someone’s day with a thoughtful bouquet. Whether it's to say 'I'm thinking of you' or to send your sympathies, flowers have the power to let them know you're thinking of them, for when words are not enough.
We selected a range of products to support the Great Daffodil Appeal 2023, where £3 of the sale of these products was donated to Marie Curie†. With your generosity, donations from these product sales contributed to funds to support Marie Curie Nurses to provide extra hours of nursing care.
