Terminal illness charity Marie Curie is seeking the help of volunteers from across the Stokes to give two hours of their time to hand out the charity’s iconic daffodil pins, in return for donations.

The charity’s annual fundraiser, the Great Daffodil Appeal, takes place in February and March, and Marie Curie are hoping to get more people than ever wearing the daffodil pin.

This year, the local Marie Curie Five Stokes Fundraising Group will be collecting at:

  • Friday 15th February – Thornbury Tesco
  • Friday 22nd February – Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra
  • Thursday 28th February, Friday 1st & 2nd March – Cribbs Causeway Morrisons
  • Thursday 28th February – Patchway Asda
  • 28th, 29th & 30th March – Filton Asda
  • Saturday 6th April – The Mall Cribbs Causeway

Jane Marshal, fundraising group chair, said:

“I collect every year for the Great Daffodil Appeal. It is a fun and easy way to get involved in your local community whilst at the same time knowing you are making a big difference to families facing the toughest of times.”

“Could you please spare an hour or two to help us collect? If so, please contact the Five Stokes Fundraising Group on 07909 966367 or email
