MONMOUTH AM, Nick Ramsay has pledged to ‘get behind the daffodil’ during February and March and help Marie Curie Nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness.
Nick joined forces with Marie Curie Nurses Jan Palmer and CeriAnn Jones at an event at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on Tuesday to help launch the Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign.
As well lending his support to the appeal, Nick is also encouraging Monmouth residents to help the charity raise more money than ever before by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin, available from volunteers across Wales, Superdrug stores, WH Smiths shops and Wyevale garden centres.
Speaking today, he said:
“Funds raised through the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal help provide care and support to people at a time when they need it the most. I am proud to ‘get behind the daffodil’ for Marie Curie, and I hope the people of Monmouthshire will join me in supporting people affected by terminal illness across Wales.”
Simon Jones, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Wales, for Marie Curie, added: “To have Nick’s support makes a huge difference to Marie Curie.
“Our services rely on charitable donations, so I’d like to express a heartfelt thank you to everyone who gives a donation and wears a daffodil pin this February and March.”
