LAST year I lost a close friend of mine.
The husband of one of my dearest friends.
He sadly passed away last October from terminal cancer and in his last weeks, it was nurses from Marie Curie who helped my friend look after him at home.
Marie Curie do amazing work like this all of the time, helping people who have come to the end of their lives, and their loved ones.
But to do more of it and to keep doing this work, they need help.
They need people like you, and like I, to do a little bit of fundraising, so they can carry on bringing their comfort, kindness and care to people.
This year, the charity is asking people to help out locally and do their bit by getting behind their Great Daffodil Appeal.
From purchasing one of their famous daffodils to running your own fundraising day, every penny really does count.
Raising just £20 would result in an hour’s care and £180 would offer care throughout the night to relieve the burden on the one million families currently directly affected by terminal illnesses.
A guide full of fundraising ideas is available.
Please help if you can. Thank you.
