The National Day of Reflection will mark the one-year anniversary since the first national lockdown. Led by the charity Marie Curie, it takes place on Tuesday, 23 March. The charity hopes the day will bring the whole of the UK together to reflect on our collective loss, support those who've been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.
Together with floral designer, Shane Connolly, who holds a Royal Warrant of Appointment to both HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, we are helping to raise funds for Marie Curie.
£20 is the hourly cost of a Marie Curie nurse and for every £20 donated via our Just Giving Page we will provide a bunch of British grown daffodils to a key worker as a thank you for all their amazing efforts since the start of the pandemic. Daffodils will be provided to key workers at London hospitals Guys and St. Thomas’, St. Georges, Chelsea and Westminster and Charing Cross, as well as to Marie Curie hospices Meadow House Hospice, Hampstead Hospice and St Joseph's Hospice.
The daffodil is the symbol of Marie Curie who supply vital care and support for anyone affected by a terminal illness, as well as supporting their friends and family. They urgently need support with an increased need for their services, and it is vital they can continue to be there and working in the best way for the people who need them most.
