Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal 2016

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 – last year alone they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK.

Every March, millions of people across the UK show their support for the Great Daffodil Appeal, which has been raising awareness and funds since 1986.

In support of Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal 2016, Stagecoach East Midlands have raised for £2050 to Gary Burr from Marie Curie.  The money was raised by encouraging people to submit messages to be printed on the double decker ‘daffodil bus’, which visited towns and cities including Lincoln, Grimsby, Hull, Scunthorpe, Gainsborough, Skegness, Worksop and Mansfield.

Donations have come in from people across the region and tributes to their family and friends are printed on the side of the bus, this raised £850 with Stagecoach’s donation matching that amount.  Staff from the Stagecoach depot in Lincoln also raised £350 at a charity football match played against the Marie Curie football team.

The daffodil bus is now full, thank you for all your kind donations and dedications!

We will be posting information on the Daffodil Bus and it's whereabouts on our twitter feed @StagecoachEMid #DaffodilBus.
