Make every daffodil count for Marie Curie

By GEM Staff Reporter in Charity

Marie Curie launched their annual Daffodil Appeal at the Senedd on Wednesday, February 8.

The appeal is now in its 31st year, and South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies joined forces with senior nurse Judith Thursfield and rapid response team members Helen Wilson and Donna Jarvis to encourage Vale residents to support the campaign.

Mr Davies has encouraged local residents to help the charity by wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin – available from Superdrug, Spar and Savers stores across the Vale.

He pointed out that money raised would be of great benefit to the charity’s Cardiff and Vale Hospice – located in Penarth.

Mr Davies said: “It is a pleasure to see the great daffodil appeal is still going after 31 years and I’d encourage all Vale residents to support it.”

Simon Jones, head of policy and public affairs for Marie Curie Wales, said: “To have the support of Andrew RT Davies makes a huge difference to Marie Curie.

“With his help we are able to raise awareness about what we do and reach more people who need us.

“Our services rely on charitable donations, so I’d like to express a heartfelt thank you to everyone who gives a donation and wears a daffodil pin this February and March.

“The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones, in homes across Wales, as well as in the charity’s Cardiff and Vale Hospice in Penarth.”
