      Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal

      PFF is very pleased to have contributed to the charity’s West Yorkshire appeal (part of the national campaign) which is supporting families who are living with a terminal illness. 

      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.”

      How your support, no matter how small or how much all add up to make a difference:

      • £17 pays for a Helper volunteer to visit a person living with a terminal illness, offering companionship and support in their home or over the telephone
      • £20 pays for an hour of expert care and emotional support from a Marie Curie nurse for someone living with a terminal illness in the comfort of their own home
      • £25 pays for a bereavement counsellor (for an hour) to listen, soothe and support someone who is grieving
      • £32 pays for a call to our support Line, meaning someone in need can pick up the phone and receive practical information and emotional support
      • £180 pays for a whole night of care from a Marie Curie nurse
      • £390 pays for a hospice bed for a day at the Bradford Hospice.

      Marie Curie is doing all it can to encourage people to donate online or in stores, such as Morrison’s, Superdrug, Savers and SPAR UK.

      You can donate to the Yorkshire appeal on their Just Giving page.

      Or make a donation to another local area or the national appeal on the Marie Curie website.
