Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last.
We believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel. We’ve been around as long as the NHS. And over the last 60 years, we’ve been there for hundreds of thousands of families. We’ll be here for you and your family when you may feel like no-one else is, to help you cope when you don’t know how.
Marie Curie Nurses care for you in your home, when you need them most, day or night. Our hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK, offering specialist round-the-clock care. And our trained volunteers and advisers are here for you with practical information and support when you don’t know what to do next or just need to talk. We’ll be by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.
But our ageing population means more and more people are living with a terminal illness, often with more complex needs. Most families in the UK will find themselves grappling with these issues in the coming years. Even now, one in four people doesn’t get the care and support they need at the end of their life. We don’t think that’s good enough. We don’t think anyone should have to face the most difficult time in their lives by themselves. So we’re determined to do more, for more of the people who need us, than we ever have before.
We urgently need support to make that possible – just £20 will pay for an hour of care from a Marie Curie Nurse.
Because every day matters when you’re living with a terminal illness.
We are looking for collectors to come along and support our collection by volunteering for approximately 1-2 hours on the 2nd & 3rd of March. We are holding the collection between 8.00am – 6:00pm. We always have a great time at our Great Daffodil Appeal collections, with choirs and entertainment throughout the day. All the money raised from the collection will enable our nurses to continue to provide free hands-on care to people with all terminal illnesses in their own homes, and vital emotional support to their loved ones. Allowing families to make the most of the precious time they have left together
