Angus South MSP Graeme Dey gave his support to Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday.
Mr Dey met staff and heard about the work of the charity that cares for terminally ill patients and their families across Scotland. The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fund-raiser, 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.
Mr Dey said: “Marie Curie Cancer Care is an incredible organisation that provides vital support to so many families and individuals across Scotland every day. I am very proud to add my support to the Great Daffodil Appeal.”
Richard Meade, head of policy and public affairs Scotland added: “It’s thanks to the support of MSPs such as Mr Dey 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 support our biggest fund-raising campaign and it’s easy to join in, simply give a donation and wear your daffodil pin.”
