Marie Curie Launches GDA 2016 TV Campaign

Marie Curie has today launched its Great Daffodil Campaign TV advert for 2016 which shows volunteers and nurses supporting the people in a number of ways.

The advert shines a light on just some of the amazing people who have helped the Daffodil Campaign in the past, highlighting how and why they are getting behind the daffodil in 2016.

Since 1986 the Great Daffodil Campaign has raised over £70 million pounds for end of life care and last year alone Marie Curie nurses and volunteers provided care and support for 40,172 people, and their families, living with a terminal illness.

Director Nick Jones donated his time, as the cause is close to his heart, and said, “When we do things together it becomes a more powerful shared experience. I wanted to communicate that positive feeling that comes from supporting a great organisation like Marie Curie.”

Just £20 raised provides an hour of care from Marie Curie and £180 provides a nurse throughout the night – an element that is close to the heart of Marie Curie Healthcare Assistant, Melissa Tiley-Waters, who says:

“I’m getting behind the daffodil by going out and collecting so that I can meet the public and talk to them about their stories.”

Would-be volunteers can sign up to the Daffodil Campaign here or find out more information on the how to fundraise with a Marie Curie Fundraising My Way pack.
