Stuart McMillan MSP SNP has added his support to Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal during a recent visit to their store in Port Glasgow.
Mr McMillan met store staff and heard about the work of the charity that cares for terminally ill people and their families across Scotland.
The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser, which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March. The money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the two Scottish Marie Curie Hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Mr McMillan said:
“I’m delighted to show my support for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal and visit their store in Port Glasgow.
“This is a great cause and I am more than happy to add my name in support.
“I would like to wish those involved in the campaign every success for the future.”
The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraising campaign and encourages everyone to give a donation and wear one of the charity’s daffodil pins during March.
Since the first Great Daffodil Appeal took place in 1986, more than £70 million has been raised to fund the charity’s work. This money has enabled Marie Curie to provide more of the free hands-on care and emotional support the charity is renowned for. Daffodil pins will be available from volunteer collectors, local shops and supermarkets. For more information call 0845 601 3107 (local rate) or visit http://www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil.
