MARIE Curie Volunteer Group urgently needs ‘daffodil volunteers’ in Welshpool.

The Welshpool Fundraising Group for Marie Curie is appealing for volunteers to give two hours of their time to hand out its iconic daffodil pins, in return for donations.

The charity is hoping to get more people than ever wearing the daffodil pin during its annual fundraiser; the Great Daffodil Appeal this February, March and April.

Marie Curie says that the appeal is urgently needed as one in four people currently don’t receive the care and support they need at the end of their life, and with the population getting older, demand on the charity’s services is set to increase.

The money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses be there for more people living with a terminal illness, providing them with vital one-to-one nursing care and support in their own homes.

Volunteer Kaye Derwas, said: “Volunteering to collect donations in return for daffodil pins is a fun and easy way to get involved in the community.

"You can collect with a friend or partner and know that you are helping Marie Curie be there when we are needed most.

"Every daffodil helps us care for more people – this is what makes the Great Daffodil Appeal so important."

Community Fundraiser Victoria Hardy, said “We have collections right across the area, with lots of dates and times to choose from.”
