‘Get behind the daff’
AS we head into March, many clubs are hoping they can end the season on a high in a few months’ time and Brentford and QPR fans will be no different. March is also a major month for the charity Marie Curie, which this year celebrates the 30th anniversary of its annual Great Daffodil Appeal.
The fundraising appeal encourages people to ‘get behind the daff ’ by giving a donation and wearing the charity’s daffodil pin.
The appeal is backed by many in the football community with a number of Premier League and Football League managers also wearing a daffodil pin throughout March.
As a long-time supporter of Marie Curie and a football man through and through, I would like to encourage fans to support the appeal in any way they can.
I have first-hand experience of the unbelievable work Marie Curie Nurses do. My mum was one of life’s characters; always out and about in the local social clubs, having a laugh.
About a year before she died, she became housebound and stopped going out. That’s when the Marie Curie Nurses got involved. You can’t quantify that kind of care and it was a real comfort to mum and the rest of the family.
Thanks for playing your part and good luck for the rest of the season.
