Bill Kidd Supports Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal

Marie Curie Bill

Wearing his daffodil with pride, Bill Kidd lent his support to Marie Curie Caner Care's Great Daffodil Appeal at the Scottish Parliament recently


Bill met staff and heard about the work of the charity that cares for terminally ill patients and their families across Scotland. He also handed over a bag of donated clothing to help stock the charity's shops.


The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie's biggest fundraiser, which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March. The money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the two Scottish Marie Curie Hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.


Bill said: "Marie Curie has become a trusted part of our community and any support we can give in the shops or on the street means we're giving support to those we know with cancer. Please donate for a Marie Curie a daffodil and wear it."

Richard Meade, Head of Policy and Public Affairs Scotland said: "It's thanks to the support of MSPs such as Bill Kidd that we can spread the word about the Great Daffodil Appeal and raise vital funds to support terminally ill people in Scotland. Every March millions of people across the UK support our biggest fundraising campaign and it's easy to join in, simply give a donation and wear your daffodil pin."
