Gary Burr, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie, said: “We are thrilled that Stagecoach has supported our Daffodil appeal through the spring and summer by providing a bus for people to leave their heartfelt tributes, a truly unique way of helping us spread our message and raise valuable funds for the charity.”
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. In Lincolnshire, the charity cared for over 2,000 people and delivered nearly 50,000 hours of care.
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.
Due to the great success of the campaign, the Daffodil Bus will be touring the region again in the near future.
