As we see the first daffodils of the year bloom, terminal illness charity Marie Curie is asking people of Sheffield to volunteer to collect for its Great Daffodil Appeal in March.

Volunteering just two hours of your time to give out daffodil pins in return for a donation can help Marie Curie Nurses be there for people living with a terminal illness in their own homes.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, which takes places throughout March, but the charity needs people to sign up to volunteer now.

Nikki Ayrton, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie said: “We are calling on the people of Sheffield to help us make every daffodil count this year. All you have to do is encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, it’s that simple. So round up your friends, family and colleagues and together we can help Marie Curie Nurses provide vitals hands on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.”

Collections where Marie Curie is looking for Volunteers this March are…

Meadowhall, 18th March; Meadowhall Interchange 31st March and 1st April; Sheffield Train Station 18th March; Tesco Metro on West Street 17th March; Morrisons at Broomhill 10th, 11th and 12th March; Morrisons at Catcliffe 10th, 11th and 12th March; Asda Chaucer Road, Sheffield 2nd April .
