Marie Curie Charity Collection – Liverpool North & South

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign. Every March, millions of people across the UK support this fundraising event by giving a small donation to wear a daffodil pin. This makes it one of the UK’s most recognisable charity appeals. The money raised helps to support the charity’s nurses, doctors, and hospice staff so they can continue to give expert care to people at the end of life, and their families.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) members of Liverpool help raise hundreds for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal in Takeover Weekend.

Muslim Youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Liverpool, took part in the AMYA ‘National Takeover Weekend’ on 5th-6th March and 12th-13th March to raise hundreds of pounds for the Great Daffodil Appeal.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) members have been working with the Royal British Legion for more a decade and have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for them through the Poppy Appeal.
