Marie Curie Cancer Care
Devoted to life 8 January 04
Spring is just around the corner and with it brings the golden bloom of daffodils and the annual Marie Curie Cancer Care Daffodil Campaign!
Marie Curie Cancer Care has over 80 nurses providing care for patients who are seriously ill with cancer, enabling them the ability to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. These specialist nurses also offer invaluable practical and emotional support to the patient’s family.
The charity’s emblem, the daffodil, is the International Symbol of Hope and this year’s Daffodil Campaign, supported by Yellow Pages, aims to raise £30,000 during March.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling on all those in the Caithness area to give just 2 hours of their time to help at a local collection to support their indispensable local nursing service. Volunteers are also needed to collect daffodil boxes from local shops at the end of the month, or to hold their own Daffodil Fundraising Event.
No matter how big or small the contribution, individuals are essential to the campaign’s success and can make a real difference in someone’s life. Those interested in helping, or who would like further information on the Daffodil Campaign are asked to contact Karen on 01463 238328 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil
