Such a small amount can make huge changes!

Kirsten Oswald MP and Harry Potter actor Jason Isaacs have joined forces to ‘Make Every Daffodil Count’ this March and help Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness.

Kirsten and Jason were pictured together with Marie Curie Nurses, Sally Monger-Godfrey and Lib Wolley at a parliamentary event in Westminster to celebrate the launch of the Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign.

Kirsten is encouraging local people to help the charity raise more money than ever before by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin. The pins are available from volunteers across the country, or Superdrug, Spar and Poundworld stores.

Kirsten commented: “Marie Curie does incredibly important work in our local communities. I know from personal experience what a difference it makes to have the support of Marie Curie Nurses at the most difficult times, and I would urge everyone in East Renfrewshire to buy a daffodil pin to show our support for all they do.

“Marie Curie nurses provide an invaluable service which helps people through the of worst times, but they can only continue to do so through people’s generous donations.

“The charity is also calling on more people to help with local collections. So if you have a couple of hours to spare, it will make a big difference to the care and support that Marie Curie can provide.”
