Derek Thomas MP and Harry Potter actor Jason Isaacs have joined forces to ‘Make Every Daffodil Count’ this March and help Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness.
Mr Thomas and long-term Marie Curie supporter Jason were pictured together with Marie Curie Nurses, Sally Monger-Godfrey and Lib Wolley at a parliamentary event in Westminster to celebrate the launch of the Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign.
Derek pledged his support to the appeal and is encouraging local people to help the charity raise more money than ever before by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin, available from volunteers across the country, or Superdrug, Spar and Poundworld stores, and Wyevale Garden Centres, during March. Morrisons supermarkets will also be holding GDA fundraising collections on 10, 11 & 12 March.
Jason, who is best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, said: “I’m delighted to be here with Derek Thomas MP to help launch Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
