Marie Curie is calling out for volunteers to support the charity this March in Todmorden to be part of the Great Daffodil Appeal.

During the month of March Marie Curie are looking for volunteers to give a couple of hours to stand with a collection bucket to raise funds from the local community in exchange for a daffodil pin badge.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s annual appeal to raise money to care for people with a terminal illness so that they can be in the comfort of their own homes.

Within Calderdale, Craven and Bradford the charity hope to raise over £43,000 this year which would equate to over 2,000 Marie Curie nursing hours, said Leah Mitchell, local community fundraiser for Todmorden.

“We have a few collections in the Todmorden area so if you or a group of friends can spare a couple of hours to raise vital funds for Marie Curie then we’d love to hear from you,” said Leah.

There will be collections in Todmorden at Morrisons supermarket on Rochdale Road on Thursday, March 12, Friday, March 13, and Saturday, March 14.

There will also a be a street collection in Todmorden on Saturday, March 14.

If you’d like to be part of the collection in Todmorden please contact Leah on 07538380909 or email leah.mitchell@mariecurie.org.uk. You can also sign up to a collection shift online via website at www.mariecurie.org.uk
