Marie Curie Nurses have offered their thanks to everyone in the Derbyshire area for helping to make the charity’s Daffodil Appeal a great success.

Since Marie Curie Cancer Care’s month-long Great Daffodil Appeal launched on 1 March, volunteer collectors have been out in force throughout Belper and sounding areas to encourage people to make a donation and wear the charity’s daffodil pin to support people with a terminal illness.

All the funds raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Highlights of the Great Daffodil Appeal in Belper included a fantastic street collection in Belper on the 8th March raising over £700 for the charity.

Sarah Battle, Derbyshire Community Fundraiser said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Belper who has supported Marie Curie and helped to make this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal such a big success. The appeal simply wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful volunteer collectors who tirelessly encouraged people to wear a daffodil pin, as well as everyone who generously made a donation to support people with a terminal illness. The funds raised will make a very significant difference, helping Marie Curie Nurses provide more care to people with terminal illnesses and their families at the time when they most need support.”
