Marie Curie collections in bloom

Saturday 30 March saw Marie Curie charity volunteers raising money for the charity in central Horsham as part of their annual ‘Great Daffodil Appeal’ held each March.

Marie Curie is the UK’s leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and this year the charity is focusing on the the stories behind why people wear their daffodil pins.

Last year the Great Daffodil Appeal raised £6 million, bringing the overall total raised since the campaign began in 1986 to £114,000. More than 2,000 Marie Curie nurses work across the country in people’s homes and the charity’s nine hospices, providing vital care for people living with a terminal illness and support for their families.

Once again this year, Horsham volunteer collectors were invited to use the offices of Henry Adams estate agency in Carfax for their day of fundraising.

“We were delighted to be able to help in a small way by offering our offices here in Horsham as a collection point and a base for their volunteers,” said Nick Hapgood, Head of Residential Sales at Henry Adams Horsham.

“It’s always a great day with lots of camaraderie among the volunteers and our team, and this year it was a sunny spring day so hopefully each daffodil pin sold will have helped towards raising lots of money for such a fantastic cause which is close to so many people’s hearts at difficult times in their lives.”
