James Dornan MSP shows support for terminal illness charity

James is supporting a call to “make every daffodil count” for Marie Curie as the

terminal illness charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal gets underway.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign

taking place throughout March. The charity is asking people to simply give a

donation and wear a Marie Curie daffodil pin. All funds raised help Marie Curie

Nurses be there for people living with a terminal illness in their own homes or at the

charity’s two Scottish hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Marie Curie Nurses work night and day in people’s homes across the UK, and

hospices provide expert care round the clock. In 2015/16 in the Glasgow area 812

patients were supported in 6,756 visits, including 4,565 fast track visits, from Marie

Curie. 9,600 people will need palliative care in the Glasgow area each year 1 . Marie

Curie continues to work with the new health and social care partnerships to ensure

that palliative care services reach more people and everyone gets the care they

need.

James Dornan MSP said: It was a privilege to attend Marie Curie’s event at the

Parliament today. I am proud to give my unreserved support in helping t raise

awareness for the excellent work they do.

Susan Lowes, Marie Curie Policy & Public Affairs Manager Scotland said: “One

in four people, around 11,000 in Scotland, miss out on the care they need and that’s

not good enough. Join our biggest annual fundraising appeal and help us provide

vital hands on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and

their loved ones. Make every daffodil count by donating and wearing your daffodil

pin.”
