As per reports, it has been revealed that this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal was a huge success. Marie Curie Nurses have been thanking people of Mid Sussex for supporting the cause.
It has been found that Mid Sussex people have travelled out to the region to spread the awareness about the event. This is the reason that the event is such a success and will help people suffering terminal cancer and other illnesses to receive quality care at their homes.
Officials were of the view that not only local people, but also associations have helped a lot in raising good amount. One such organization was Haywards Heath, which not only supported to raise awareness about the event but also donated a generous amount.
They were quite concerned whether or not, they will be able to match up to the level of last year, in which they raised more than £5million across the UK. They were quite excited to announce that they have been able to match up to the level of 2011.
“Whether they were able to give an hour or a few days, by generously donating their own time and energy, the charity’s volunteers were able to encourage more people to donate to the collections, supporting local patients and families”, said a charity’s spokeswoman.
She further affirmed that fund raising activities take place on different dates, so that people can take part in it according to their suitability. The collection at Chester-le-Street has been able to raise 693 for Marie Cure Cancer Care, said the spokeswoman.
She further affirmed that they can not reveal the final amount, which they raised, as till now they have not calculated it.
