MARIE Curie is urgently calling for volunteers in Winsford and Middlewich to give just two hours of their time to hand out the charity’s iconic daffodil pins, in return for donations.

The UK's leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families runs the Great Daffodil Appeal in March every year, their biggest fundraising campaign.

In the next 10 years, more than six million people will die in the UK and of this number 75 per cent will need end of life care.

The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help Marie Curie provide much-needed expert care to people with terminal illnesses, as well as support for their loved ones.

Gina Hopwood, Marie Curie community fundraiser for Winsford and Middlewich, said: “Whether you wear a daffodil pin in celebration, in solidarity or in memory of a loved one, you are joining with millions of others to help make sure all dying people get the care and support they deserve.

“Volunteering just two hours at a local collection is a great way to show your support and help us raise money to help make sure that we can be there for more people at the end of their lives.

Winsford Guardian:

Collecting can be a lot of fun

“Collecting can be a lot of fun too. You can do it on your own or with family and friends, and we will support you every step of the way. Volunteering is also an easy way to get involved in your local community and meet new people.”
