Pop stars Una Healy and Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays were at parliamentary buildings at Stormont Estate to help launch Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal.As the band’s chosen charity for 2011, the girls were pictured (below) with local Marie Curie Nurse Carmel McCullough as they helped turn Stormont a Daffodil yellow to raise awareness of Marie Curie’s flagship fundraiser, which takes place throughout March.
Marie Curie Cancer Care has been turning iconic sites across the length and breadth of the UK yellow including Derry ~ Londonderry Civic offices which will illuminate for the whole month of March, Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the National Gallery of Scotland.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is the charity’s annual fundraiser and in Northern Ireland it aims to raise over £100,000. Throughout March everyone in the region is encouraged to give a donation in return for a Marie Curie daffodil pin.

All money raised enables Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with a terminal illness in their own homes and the charity’s hospices.

Daffodil pins can be picked up from local stores, schools, street collectors and from Marie Curie Shops. To find where you can get a daffodil pin in your local community please visit

To make a £3.00 donation to the Great Daffodil Appeal please text DAFF to 70777 now.
