THE Marie Curie Hospice, Cardiff and the Vale based is appealing for volunteers to give two hours of their time to hand out the charity’s iconic daffodil pins in the community, in return for donations.

The charity is specifically looking for volunteers to help in Penarth town centre from February 22 to the 28 as part of their Great Daffodil Appeal in February and March.

All money raised from donations will help the Marie Curie Hospice, based in Penarth, be there for more people living with a terminal illness, providing them and their loved ones with nursing care and support.

Marie Curie community fundraiser for Cardiff and the Vale, Hannah Leckie said: “Volunteering to collect donations in return for daffodil pins is a fun and easy way to get involved in the local community. You can collect with a friend or partner and know that you are helping Marie Curie be there when we are needed most.

“Chances are, we all know someone who’s been affected by a terminal illness. And it’s heartbreaking that not everyone gets the care and support they need to live their final days with dignity, in the place they want to be

“Every daffodil helps us care for more people – this is what makes the Great Daffodil Appeal so important.”

Those wishing to volunteer two hours of their time to the Great Daffodil Appeal or to find out more about the appeal, can visit or call the Cardiff and Vale Fundraising office on 02920 426 068.
