Midhurst Lions Club supports Great Daffodil Appeal


Members of the Lions Club of Midhurst have supported the Marie Curie Cancer Care Great Daffodil Appeal with fund-raising collections in Midhurst during March. Every penny collected will be spent in local communities helping to provide free nursing care to terminally ill patients in their own homes and Marie Curie hospices. 


Lions Club President John Travers says: "We can fund one hour of free nursing care for someone in Midhurst district by raising just 20. Giving a small donation and wearing the iconic Marie Curie daffodil pin really can make a big difference.


The Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care said: "Terminal illnesses touch everyone and Lions fund-raising enable Marie Curie to deliver additional nursing care from the generosity of local people in Midhurst


The Great Daffodil Appeal has huge public support and has raised more than 70 million since 1986. Marie Curie Cancer Care chose Lions Clubs British Isles & Ireland to be its first official partner for the Great Daffodil Appeal last year to help reach a target of 1 million over three years.
