Can you be a volunteer collector for Marie Curie?

As we see the first daffodils of the year bloom, terminal illness charity Marie Curie is asking people of Middlesbrough to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal in March. Volunteering just two hours of your time to give out daffodil pins in return for a donation can help Marie Curie Nurses be there for people living with a terminal illness in their own homes.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, which takes places throughout March, but the charity needs people to sign up to volunteer now.

There are a number of collections happening in Middlesbrough, including:
- Middlesbrough street collection, 10th and 11th March
- Middlesbrough Berwick Hills Morrisons collection, 10th – 12th March.

Lisa Wild Community Fundraiser, Marie Curie said: “We are calling on the people of Middlesbrough to help us make every daffodil count this year. All you have to do is encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, it’s that simple. So round up your friends, family and colleagues and together we can help Marie Curie Nurses provide vitals hands on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.”

Make Every Daffodil Count and volunteer to support now. For more information on how to get involved in the Great Daffodil Appeal, please contact Lisa Wild on 0191 2191243 or email Lisa.Wild@mariecurie.org.uk
