Help to Fight The Devastating Effect of Cancer
with daffodils and bluebells this Saturday and beyond
Cancer will have touched all of your lives in one way or another. It leaves you feeling powerless but there are ways you can reclaim just a little control and help sufferers in the process.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is appealing for people to help make its daffodils great in 2009 by volunteering for its annual Great Daffodil Appeal. Collections are taking place in Ealing on Saturday 14th March. If you are busy on this date, then there are still plenty of other opportunities for you to get involved, just contact us to find out more.
Each March the charity encourages everyone in the UK to give a donation in return for a daffodil to wear in support of Marie Curie Nurses. All money raised will help Marie Curie Cancer Care provide nursing care for people with cancer and other terminal illnesses in their own homes and the charity’s hospices.
Last year in the borough of Ealing Marie Curie Nurses cared for 40 people and provided more than 1,600 hours of unique nursing care in the homes of terminally ill people. However we are planning this year to care for 245 patients and provide more than 13,700 hours of nursing care and we need your help to do this. All our care is provided completely free to patients and their families.
To volunteer for the Great Daffodil Appeal and help Marie Curie Cancer Care provide care for terminally ill people and support for their loved ones, visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil or call the Daffodil Hotline on 0845 601 3107.
WALK AMONGST BLUEBELLS AND RAISE FUNDS FOR CANCER RESEARCH UK
The Annual Bluebell Walk takes place Sunday 26th April at Kew. Walkers are invited to enjoy the glorious surroundings of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew and help raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The 5km (three-mile) sponsored event is a great opportunity for walkers of all ages to view the beautiful gardens and historic landmarks at Kew.
This is a great day out for all the family. There will be cafés en route serving a variety of food and drink, and there are plenty of children's activities within the gardens.
The event, now in its twelfth year, has raised more than £210,000 for Cancer Research UK. Join in this year and help raise even more!
Please note it is not possible to register children and concessions online.
