A helping hand for Marie Curie UK

It’s always nice when we are able to help support a good cause – with some of our members giving up their spare time to help with a collection to raise funds for Marie Curie UK’s work to help the terminally ill.

The collection was held at Morrisons in Canterbury and our members happily put on the eye-catching daffodil hats that have come to symbolise Marie Curie UK’s work.

Marie Curie UK supports the terminally ill (including those with terminal cancer) and, according to their website, Marie Curie nurses provide “highly skilled care in our hospices and in people’s homes across the UK, day and night.” Their website also says that “trained volunteers and advisers offer practical information and support” when people don’t know what to do next…or just need to talk. And the daffodils? The website says: “They’re a positive, life-affirming symbol, with a bright and joyful yellow colour.”

You can learn more about Marie Curie UK and donate direct to them here. You can also find other fundraising ideas or buy from the Marie Curie shop on their site in order to support their work.
