Jane Hutt sponsors Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal launch and congratulates Vale fundraiser
Jane Hutt joined forces with Marie Curie Nurses by sponsoring an event in the Senedd on Tuesday 8th February to launch the Great Daffodil Appeal. The Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, now in its 31st year. Jane also congratulated Llantwit Major resident Geoff Mortimer at the event, who won the Marie Curie South East Wales Volunteer of the Year award.
“ I was delighted to congratulate fundraising volunteer of the year Geoff Mortimer at this year’s Daffodil Appeal launch which showcased the work of the newly re-furbished Day Therapy Unit-providing enhanced day service provision at the Penarth Cardiff & Vale Hospice. I would like to thank all the wonderful staff and nurses at Marie Curie for the incredible, valuable work they do.
The Welsh Government is committed to supporting people with terminal illnesses and £6.4million is invested annually in specialist palliative care services and a further £1million has been approved for this financial year to expand the ‘hospice at home’ services across Wales and other initiatives, to support caring for people at the end of life. ”
People in the Vale of Glamorgan can help the charity by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin during February and March, available from volunteers across Wales and in Superdrug, Spar and Savers stores and Wyevale garden centres.
