‘Thank you’ to Midlothian from cancer care charity

Marie Curie Nurses are thanking “everyone in Midlothian” for helping to make their Great Daffodil Appeal a roaring success.

Since the month long appeal launched on March 1, volunteer donation collectors have been out in force to encourage people to wear the charity’s daffodil pin and make a donation to support people with a terminal illness.

In Midlothian the Great Daffodil Appeal raised £6,213.01 which contributed to an Edinburgh and the Lothians grand total of £61,157.

Money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal helps Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and the Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh.

Arlene Main, Community Fundraiser said: “Thank you to everyone in Midlothian who has supported Marie Curie Cancer Care and this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. From our brilliant volunteer donation collectors and volunteers from the Lions Clubs who tirelessly encouraged people to donate and wear a daffodil pin, to everyone who gave what they could to support people with a terminal illness – I want to say a big, heartfelt thank-you.

“The Great Daffodil Appeal is vital in helping Marie Curie Cancer Care nurse people with terminal illnesses in their final hours and everyone’s support will make a real difference.”
