Marie Curie has partnered with local energy supplier, Power NI to officially launch its Great Daffodil Appeal that will run throughout the month of March.

The Great Daffodil Appeal (GDA) is Marie Curie’s flagship fundraising campaign and has been operating for more than 30 years across the UK.

To help support GDA, Marie Curie is organising a number of collections including Banbridge on Saturday 12 March.

All the money raised will used to deliver and develop vital services to people, and their families living with any terminal illness, either in their own homes or at the charity’s Belfast hospice.

Phil Kane, Community Fundraiser said, “Our GDA campaign has always been well supported in Banbridge and I know this year will be no different.

“So far we have arranged three local collections throughout March.

“Supporting GDA couldn’t be easier...you could host a bake sale, arrange a work dress-down day, host a quiz or simply make a donation at one of our collection points and wear your daffodil throughout March.

“By supporting the campaign you’ll be helping people, and their families in Banbridge and across Northern Ireland that are living with a terminal illness.”
