The Great Daffodil Appeal 2022

On Tuesday (1st March) Marie Curie will be launching its flagship annual fundraising campaign, The Great Daffodil Appeal, which raises much-needed funds to ensure terminally ill people and their loved ones across the country receive the care and support they need in their own homes, or in one of its nine hospices.

Marie Curie Nurses are there for people living with any terminal illness including cancer, dementia and heart disease. In 2021 it supported 69,000 people – the highest on record since the charity was created over 70 years ago.

The Great Daffodil Appeal coincides with the activities to mark Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection on 23rd March, which will look to connect the millions of people who are grieving, and remembering the family, friends, neighbours and colleagues we’ve all lost during the pandemic.

Aston spoke to Michelle Martin, director of development and communities at Marie Curie.
