Stevenson Supports Marie Curie's Great Daffodil Appeal

Local SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson got behind the daffodil to lend his support to the Great Daffodil Appeal at the Scottish Parliament this week.

Mr Stevenson met staff and heard about the work of the charity that last year provided care and support for more than 7,400 people living with a terminal illness in Scotland.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraising campaign which takes place throughout March. The charity asks people to make a donation in return for a daffodil pin. All funds raised help Marie Curie Nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones, in their own homes or at the charities two Scottish hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“Marie Curie has 2000 nurses in the UK and provides care and support for more than 7,400 people living with a terminal illness across Scotland.

“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.”

Richard Meade, Marie Curie Head of Policy and Public Affairs Scotland said:

“We’re calling on everyone in Scotland get behind the daffodil and join Stewart supporting people living with a terminal illness by donating and wearing a daffodil pin. Your support will help us provide more free hands-on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness and their families.”
