Community fundraiser for Marie Curie Gemma Hewitt
As we see the first daffodils of the year bloom, terminal illness charity Marie Curie is asking people of York to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal in March.

How to get involved

York city centre

February 23 and 25

Volunteer to help the appeal here

Volunteering just two hours of your time to give out daffodil pins in return for a donation can help Marie Curie Nurses be there for people living with a terminal illness in their own homes.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, but the charity needs people to sign up to volunteer to help with city centre street collections on February 23 and 25.

Desperately need volunteers

Marie Curie community fundraiser Gemma Hewitt said: “We desperately need volunteers for the York city centre street collections during half term so we’re encouraging parents to bring their children along to lend a hand.

“We’re also calling on local businesses to urge employees to use their volunteer time for the Great Daffodil Appeal – each collection slot is only two hours.”

Gemma added:

We are calling on the people of York to help us make every daffodil count this year.

All you have to do is encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, it’s that simple.

So round up your friends, family and colleagues and together we can help Marie Curie Nurses provide vitals hands on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.
