Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal launched

Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal has been launched for 2015.

Over 100 daffodil events/collections will be taking place across Glasgow, Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire over the next seven weeks.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “We need over 600 volunteers to help deliver these events. If you haven’t signed up yet then we would really appreciate you visiting www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil to sign up.

“Simply enter your postcode or the postcode of a store/town you would like to help at and you can sign up in an instant.

“Give us a call on 0141 557 7563 if you prefer the phone.”

The spokesperson added: “This really is a special and crucial time for Marie Curie; special as awareness is at a high and crucial as we can raise so much money. The 2014 Daffodil Appeal raised £8.6 million across the UK. By giving a couple of hours of your time you could help fund four or five hours of Marie Curie nursing care.
