Appeal for daffodil volunteers

 

ct-mariecurrieMarie Curie is asking people in Cheshire to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal in March and April.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, which takes places throughout March and April, but the charity needs people to sign up to volunteer now.

Kelvin Carter, Marie Curie collector and face of The Great Daffodil Appeal, said: “Sylvia, my first wife, was a Marie Curie Nurse. She enjoyed being in a position to be able to help people, that was why she did nursing. When Sylvia was diagnosed with cancer, I knew that I couldn’t do her justice in looking after her in the way that she deserved to be.

The Marie Curie hospice where she worked offered to look after her and I was absolutely delighted to think that the people who had worked with her, and loved her, were able to care for her. It was amazing – it couldn’t have been better. I raise money for the appeal in Sylvia’s memory. Two hours spent collecting isn’t a lot of time but every second counts. I would encourage anyone to collect – If I can do it, you can.”
