Wearing his daffodil with pride, Mr Stevenson met staff and heard about the work of the charity that cares for terminally ill patients and their families across Scotland. He also handed over a bag of donated clothing to help stock the charity’s shops.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser, which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March. The money raised will help Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the two Scottish Marie Curie Hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“The work carried out by Marie Curie nurses is exceptional, and the Great Daffodil Appeal is vital to generate the funds needed to carry out the work that they do.

“Marie Curie has 2000 nurses in the UK and last year they worked for 1,300,000 hours caring for terminally ill patients, including half of all cancer patients who die at home.”

Richard Meade, head of Policy and Public Affairs Scotland said:

“It’s thanks to the support of MSPs such as Stewart Stevenson that we can spread the word about the Great Daffodil Appeal and raise vital funds to support terminally ill people in Scotland.

“Every March millions of people across the UK support our biggest fundraising campaign and it’s easy to join in, simply give a donation and wear your daffodil pin.”
