  • Volunteers needed to hand out daffodil pins in return for donations to Marie Curie charity

    Danielle Thompson

    VOLUNTEERS are needed to give two hours of their time to a national charity – to hand out ‘iconic’ daffodil pins, in return for donations.

    The team at Marie Curie, the UK’s charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families, are urgently calling for volunteers in Southport to support their biggest fund-raising campaign, the Great Daffodil Appeal, which is held every March.

    Tina Gill, Marie Curie community fundraiser for Southport, said: “Whether you wear a daffodil pin in celebration, in solidarity or in memory of a loved one, you are joining with millions of others to help make sure all dying people get the care and support they deserve.

    “Volunteering just two hours at a local collection is a great way to show your support and help us raise money to help make sure that we can be there for more people at the end of their lives.

    “Collecting can be a lot of fun too. You can do it on your own or with family and friends, and we will support you every step of the way. Volunteering is also an easy way to get involved in your local community and meet new people.”

    To volunteer, visit mariecurie.org.uk/collect, email Tina.Gill@mariecurie.org.uk or call her on 0151 801 1405.
