Last week I was delighted to attend the launch of Marie Curie’s 38th Great Daffodil Appeal with former footballer and broadcaster Chris Kamara and Marie Curie Nurse Cherry Rowland.

Every March, the Great Daffodil Appeal encourages people to donate and wear a daffodil pin to raise money to help Marie Curie continue its vital work. Currently, one in four people don’t get the care and support they need at the end of life.

The money raised helps Marie Curie provide expert care and support to anyone with an illness they’re likely to die from, and support those close to them, either through one of the charity’s hospices, hospice care at home services, or free Information and Support line which provides practical and emotional support on any aspect of death, dying and bereavement.

Everyone should receive the best possible care and support at the end of their life, but sadly too many miss out. That’s why I’m proud to be supporting Marie Curie on their mission to close the gap in end of life care and make sure everyone gets the care and support they need.

Last year, the charity provided direct expert end of life care and support to more than 44,200 people across the UK. By 2028, the charity aims to grow that number to 100,000.
