Come along to the centre on Tuesday 3 March to share tributes and memories of a loved one on a ‘Great Big Daffodil’ as part of Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, the Great Daffodil Appeal.
The 7-foot-tall (2 metre) Great Big Daffodil, which is travelling over 1,000 miles through seven towns and cities across the UK, gives you the opportunity to share your personal memories and stories behind the daffodil pin you wear. Alongside this you will also be able to pick up one of the charity’s iconic daffodil pins as well as take time to reflect, remember and pay tribute to those who have been special to you.
Marie Curie is a charity which provides care and support to people with terminal illness and their families, and every March the Great Daffodil Appeal calls on people to donate and wear one of Marie Curie’s daffodil pins to help fund vital care and support for people living with terminal illness.
In Greater Manchester the appeal helps fund the charity’s at home nursing service, as well as it’s free, confidential Information & Support Line which allows people to speak to a Marie Curie Nurse if they have questions or concerns about any aspect of terminal illness.
Trained Information & Support Line Officers can also provide practical advice and emotional support, such as guidance about day-to-day care or where to find financial support, as well as offer help with bereavement.
The Great Big Daffodil will be at intu Trafford Centre on Tuesday 3March from 10am to 10pm, located on the ground floor in front of H&M and Boots.
