Marie Curie has launched its flagship fundraising initiative – the Great Daffodil Appeal – for the first time in the campaign’s 35-year history without public collections.
This is one of the biggest annual drives for the charity. The loss of volunteer collectors may leave an overall potential £3m deficit in comparison to previous years. This comes at a time when Marie Curie has seen a 16.5% rise in the number of people it is helping to care for at the end of life.
Amanda Warrent, Community Fundraiser North & East Bradford said: “We cannot thank PFF enough for their generous and much-needed donation towards this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. It means even more to us in 2021 than in previous years. Marie Curie Nurses have been on the front line of the pandemic providing vital care for dying people and their loved ones. At the same time, we’ve been unable to fundraise as normal. This donation means we can continue to care and support, thank you.”
