As the UK’s leading end of life charity, Marie Curie is here to support everyone in the UK through all aspects of death and bereavement—and to fight for a society where everyone gets to have the best experience possible at the end of their lives. Here in Yorkshire our Marie Curie Nurses, Hospice, Helper Service and Support Line help people—along with their loved ones—through their final years, months, days and hours of life.
So many of you across North Yorkshire stood by us during 2020, and we can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done. Your support matters and has made such a difference. However, the pandemic has had a devastating impact on our fundraising since March 2020 and we continue to face a significant loss of income.
We are still unable to fundraise as normal. With much of our usual annual Great Daffodil Appeal fundraising activities not possible, including hundreds of daffodil collections in towns and cities across Yorkshire, this Spring we need your help like never before so we can carry on our vital work.
The appeal means even more to us in 2021 than previous years, so we’d like to ask the people of North Yorkshire to show their support this March. However you choose to support the appeal this year, it will make a huge difference to Marie Curie and the people we care for. Together we can create a better end of life experience for patients and families who are living with terminal illness.
There are countless ways you can support Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal, including taking on your own fundraising challenge, setting up your own virtual collection, taking part in Step into Spring, donating or proudly displaying our daffodil in your window—every action helps and makes a difference.
