Nick pledges to “get behind the daffodil” for Marie Curie this February

Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay has pledged to encourage constituents to donate and wear their iconic Marie Curie daffodil throughout February and March to help the charity’s Nurses provide vital care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Nick joined forces with Marie Curie Chief Executive Matthew Reed alongside Marie Curie Nurses at an event at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on Wednesday 5th February to help launch the Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign.

As well as lending his support to the appeal, Nick is also encouraging his Monmouth constituents to help the charity raise more money than ever before by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin. These are available from volunteers across Wales, Marie Curie shops, Superdrug, Spar, Hotter Shoes and the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group.

Nick said: “Funds raised through the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal help provide care and support to people at a time when they need it the most, be that through a Marie Curie Nurse at home or in a hospice, or by speaking to the charity’s Information and Support line.

“ I hope the people of Monmouthshire will join me in supporting people affected by terminal illness across the country by proudly wearing their Marie Curie daffodil throughout February and March.”
