Great Daffodil Appeal

Great Daffodil Appeal

The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s largest annual campaign. Held every March, it brings together millions of people across the UK to volunteer, fundraise, donate and wear a daffodil.

Without the Great Daffodil Appeal, highly skilled Marie Curie Nurses wouldn’t be able to continue giving vital care to more people living with a terminal illness and their families.

We support the great daffodil appeal with our bunches of daffodils, for each bunch sold, 10p goes to marie curie. We also support with donantions from a range of products, which will be announced nearer the time.

SPAR stores across the UK also support by selling daffodil pins, dressing up in yellow for ‘Go Yellow’ days, hosting raffles and other fundraising activities in store.

How can you get involved?

There are so many ways to be part of the Great Daffodil Appeal – whether that’s by volunteering to collect, fundraising (virtually or otherwise), or donating and wearing your daffodil, or simply by heading down to your local SPAR to find our tasty producst & fresh cut daffodils that each provide a donation.  By taking part at this time, you’re uniting with millions of people affected by terminal illness and bereavement during the pandemic. Your daffodil means Marie Curie Nurses can provide highly skilled care for more people, as well as invaluable support to their families.


SPAR Oswaldtwistle raised over £2,000 in 2020 by utilising their screens in store- asking customers to donate £5 for their selfie to be displayed on their in-store screens! They also dressed all in yellow, the store manager wearing a bright yellow suit!
