Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal launched

Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal has been launched for 2015.

Over 100 daffodil events/collections will be taking place across Glasgow, Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire over the next seven weeks.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “We need over 600 volunteers to help deliver these events. If you haven’t signed up yet then we would really appreciate you visiting to sign up.

“Simply enter your postcode or the postcode of a store/town you would like to help at and you can sign up in an instant.

“Give us a call on 0141 557 7563 if you prefer the phone.”

The spokesperson added: “This really is a special and crucial time for Marie Curie; special as awareness is at a high and crucial as we can raise so much money. The 2014 Daffodil Appeal raised £8.6 million across the UK. By giving a couple of hours of your time you could help fund four or five hours of Marie Curie nursing care.
