Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal has been raising awareness and funds since 1986.
Every March, millions of people across the UK show their support for their work, simply by giving a donation to wear a daffodil pin.
Every hour donated by collectors, every penny raised, every daffodil people wear – it all helps fund crucial hours of care at home for people living with any terminal illness.
Without this generosity, thousands of families across the UK wouldn’t be able to make the most of the precious time they have left together.
The charity’s nurses work night and day, caring for people in their homes and in their nine hospices. They’re also there for people throughout their illness by giving practical information, offering support from trained volunteers and being there when someone wants to talk.
Anyone with a terminal illness, or a family member or friend, can request this help through their GP, district nurse, hospital nurse or consultant.
Last year, they provided care and support for more than 50,000 people living with a terminal illness, and their families.
