Pop stars Una Healy and Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays were at parliamentary buildings at Stormont Estate to help launch Marie Curie Cancer Careâ€™s Great Daffodil Appeal.As the bandâ€™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 Curieâ€™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 charityâ€™s annual fundraiser and in Northern Ireland it aims to raise over Â£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 charityâ€™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 www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil.
To make a Â£3.00 donation to the Great Daffodil Appeal please text DAFF to 70777 now.
