Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has added his support to Marie Curie’s annual daffodil campaign and called on local residents to follow suit.
Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life. Marie Curie provides much-needed expert care to people with terminal illnesses, as well as supporting their families.
By donating and wearing your daffodil, members of the public contribute towards enabling the charity to care for more people with a terminal illness and, importantly, provide vital support to their families.
Chris Elmore MP said:
“Whether it’s worn in celebration, in solidarity or in memory of a loved one, your daffodil tells a story. I’m proud to support the work Marie Curie do day in, day out to support people living with cancer and their families.
Marie Curie nurses looked after my grandfather when he was nearing the very end of his life and helped my family throughout this difficult time. I’m forever grateful for their warmth and care. Please wear a daffodil with pride this March!”
