Marie Curie Cancer Care

Meon Valley Lions Club has supported the Marie Curie Cancer Care organisation's Great Daffodil Appeal, with fund-raising collections in Winnall and Bishop's Waltham.

Every penny collected is spent in local communities helping to provide free nursing care to terminally ill patients in their own homes and Marie Curie hospices.

We can fund one hour of free nursing care for someone by raising just 20.

In 2013, Lions Clubs raised 176,548, funding 8,800 hours of free nursing care.

Giving a small donation and wearing the iconic Marie Curie daffodil pin really can make a big difference.

Terminal illnesses touch everyone and Lions fund-raising will enable Marie Curie to deliver additional nursing care from the generosity of local people.

The Great Daffodil Appeal has huge public support and has raised more than 70 million since 1986.

Marie Curie Cancer Care chose Lions Clubs British Isles & Ireland to be its first official partner for the Great Daffodil Appeal in 2013 to help reach a target of 1 million over three years.
