Marie Curie ‘daffodil volunteers’ are needed in Hampshire

Terminal illness charity, Marie Curie, needs the help of volunteers in Hampshire to give two hours of their time to hand out the charity’s iconic daffodil pins, in return for donations.


The charity’s annual fundraiser, the Great Daffodil Appeal, takes place in March and Marie Curie are hoping to get more people than ever wearing the daffodil pin.


Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life.* The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help the charity provide much-needed expert care to people with terminal illnesses, as well as supporting their families.


Marie Curie Community Fundraiser forHampshire, Sophie Geary said:“Whatever your story, donating and wearing a daffodil pin during March unites you with millions of others to help make sure all dying people get the care and support they deserve.


“Volunteering just two hours of your time at a collection near you means that you are raising money to help make sure more dying people get the care and support they need at the end of their lives. What’s more, collecting is lots of fun, you can do it on your own or with friends, and Marie Curie will support you from the moment you sign up.”


A local volunteer says: “I collect every year for the Great Daffodil Appeal. It is a fun and easy way to get involved in your local community whilst at the same time knowing you are making a big difference to families facing the toughest of times.”
