MARIE CURIE APPEAL 2017 LAUNCHED THIS WEEK WITH HARRY POTTER STAR, JASON ISAACS
Once again I was delighted to support the Marie Curie Appeal as the 2017 appeal was launched this week in Westminster with Harry Potter star Jason Isaacs in attendance, alongside Marie Curie Nurses, Sally Monger-Godgrey and Lib Wolley. The theme of the launch is to "Make Every Daffodil Count" this March and help Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness. This is Marie Curie's biggest annual fundraising campaign. Making a small donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin, available from volunteers across the country, or Superdrug, Spar and Poundworld stores during March, will help make a difference to those living with cancer. The charity is also calling on more people to help with local collections. Volunteering a couple hours of your time will make such a difference to the care and support that Marie Curie can provide. One in four people miss out on the care and support they need at the end of life. This is not good enough and that is why it is important to support the annual Marie Curie fundraising appeal to help more people affected by terminal illness to be reached. Make every daffodil count. Your daffodil means care for someone in their own home, and for a nurse to be with them through the night. This makes a real difference to people at the end of their lives.
