Orkney’s MSP, Liam McArthur has commended the work of Marie Curie nurses, staff and volunteers in the islands during a debate marking this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraising campaign which takes place throughout March. All funds raised help Marie Curie nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones, in their own homes or at the charity’s two Scottish hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Commenting after the debate, Liam McArthur MSP said:
“Unfortunately, there are still people in Orkney in need of palliative care who are missing out, while current trends suggest that demand is only likely to grow in future. I hope that collaboration between the public and voluntary sectors can see this need met more consistently.
