FYLDE MP Mark Menzies joined forces with impressionist and comedian Jon Culshaw to pledge his support to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Mr Menzies was attending a Parliamentary event in the House of Commons to celebrate the Great Daffodil Appeal.

The Member of Parliament pledged his support to Marie Curie’s flagship annual fundraising campaign and is encouraging local people to donate and wear one of the charity’s iconic daffodil pins.

The money raised through the appeal helps Marie Curie provide free nursing and hospice care to support terminally ill people and their families in Fylde.

Mr Menzies said: “I was delighted to attend the event and hear about the fantastic work Marie Curie does in Fylde and around the country.

“I will wear my daffodil pin with pride and would urge people to support the campaign to raise funds for what is a very worthy cause.”

Imelda Redmond, Director of Policy and Public Affairs at Marie Curie, added: “We are grateful to have the support of Mr Menzies and Jon Culshaw as our fundraising activities are vital to ensure we can continue to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in our hospices.”

To make a donation to the Great Daffodil Appeal look out for bright yellow collection boxes or visit www.maricurie.org.uk/daffodil.
