Marie Curie Nurses in Horsham want to thank everyone involved in making the 2016 Great Daffodil Appeal a great success.

The month-long appeal, which launched on 1st March, saw volunteers out in force across the country, to encourage people to make a donation and wear the charity’s daffodil pin to help support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.

Funds raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal help our 13 Marie Curie Nurses in West Sussex to continue giving care and support to people living with a terminal illness in their own homes.

The charity wants to thank supporters in Horsham for their support. Highlights of the Great Daffodil Appeal in the area include people getting together to collect at Tesco, Sainsbury’s and the town centre, giving over 70 hours of volunteering to raise a remarkable £3,943!

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraiser and I would like to say a great big thank you to everyone in Horsham for being so generous and kind, by either donating or by being one of our amazing volunteers.

By supporting the appeal and funding over 197 Marie Curie Nursing Hours, you’re bringing care and support to people living with a terminal illness, as well as peace of mind and a chance to rest for their families.

If you would like any more information about Marie Curie support or our Horsham Volunteer Fundraising Group, please call Kate on 01883 832624 or email kate.holdsworth@mariecurie.org.uk
