Marie Curie Nurses offer their thanks to everyone in the area for helping to make the 2015 Great Daffodil Appeal a success.

Since Marie Curie launched its month-long Great Daffodil Appeal on March 1st, volunteer collectors have been out throughout Padiham encouraging people to make a donation and wear the charity’s daffodil pin to support people living with a terminal illness.

All the funds raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal help Marie Curie Nurses to provide care to people with living with a terminal illness in their own homes.

Sarah Fletcher, senior community fund-raiser said: “The Great Daffodil Appeal is the charity’s biggest annual fundraiser and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Padiham for working so tirelessly to make this year’s appeal such a big success.

“Our work simply wouldn’t be possible without our volunteer collectors, who give up their time to raise awareness and encourage people to donate to the appeal. Everyone who generously made a donation this March has made it possible for Marie Curie Nurses to provide care to people living with a terminal illness, as well as vital emotional support for their loved ones.”
