Daffodil Bus hits the streets of Worksop for Marie Curie

10 Aug 2016


A bright yellow bus displaying tributes to local people will be travelling around Worksop to raise awareness of the work done by cancer charity Marie Curie.

Stagecoach East Midlands launched the Daffodil Bus in March to help raise £1,000 for Marie Curie this spring and summer by encouraging people to submit messages to be printed on the double decker bus. 

The Daffodil Bus will be in service across Worksop between 8th August and 27th August and the messages have been printed on the side of the bus with space for more.  

It’s all part of supporting the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal, which is Marie Curie’s largest annual fundraising campaign. The bus features messages from people wanting to show their support for, or pay tribute to a family member or friend.
Michelle Hargreaves, Managing Director for Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “We are delighted that we are able to show our support for such an important cause, this is all about paying respects to family members and friends and hopefully making people think, when they see the bus, what they can do to help. 
“Not only has it raised money for an incredible charity, it raises awareness of the vital work that Marie Curie does for people across our region – providing care and support to people affected by terminal illness.”
A minimum donation of £5 was asked for, with all proceeds going to the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal. People had the option of adding their own name and location to the daffodil.
Gary Burr, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie, said: “We are really pleased that Stagecoach is supporting Marie Curie. The bus looks fantastic and we are pleased with the donations so far. We would love more people to support the Daffodil appeal during the spring and summer.
“The Daffodil Bus is a really thoughtful way for people to honour their loved ones and I hope the community will take comfort in this and remember its friends and family with fond memories.”

There is still space available for more people to pay tribute to family and friends.

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with terminal illness and their families.  The charity has been carrying out this vital work for over 65 years and last year alone, cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. 
Stagecoach East Midlands has previously worked with the charity to raise awareness and donations. For six years, a Marie Curie branded double decker bus, was loaned to the charity for special events and photo shoots.
