Palmer and Harvey (P&H) has been announced as the distribution partner for UK charity Marie Curie in its 2015 Great Daffodil Appeal, helping to save the charity thousands of pounds in costs and raise even more money to care for terminally ill people.
The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses care for people living with a terminal illness in their own home, or in one of the charity’s hospices.
Last year the Great Daffodil Appeal raised £8.26m – paying for 413,000 hours of care for terminally ill people in the UK. The appeal ran throughout March and was supported by thousands of volunteers across the UK. Every £20 collected pays for an hour of nursing care.
In a two-year programme, P&H will be helping Marie Curie towards its fundraising goals by saving thousands of pounds in storage and distribution costs, allowing even more money to be used for vital care.
The company is providing warehousing and distribution for collection boxes and daffodil pins. To date, over 24,000 boxes of daffodils, including over 2.8m daffodils pins and other supporting material, have been distributed to the charity’s regional community teams.
