Terminal illness charity, Marie Curie had its annual Great Daffodil Appeal boosted thanks to the tremendous support of people in Aberdeen City and Shire this month.
Collections held throughout Aberdeen City and Shire have so far have raised more than £9000, helping fund much-needed expert care to people with terminal illnesses, as well as supporting their families.
The charity’s biggest annual fundraiser, the Great Daffodil Appeal, takes place every March and calls on people to donate and wear one of the charity’s iconic daffodil pins
Susan Walsh, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Aberdeen City and Shire, said: “We can’t continue to provide the vital care and support needed for people living with a terminal illness without the generous support of the public.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Aberdeen(shire) for helping to raise the funds needed to help make sure more dying people get the care they deserve at the end of their lives. Their generosity means we raised a fantastic amount and saw more people wearing our daffodils.”
