About Marie Curie’s Great Big Daffodil

Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life.

Marie Curie provides much-needed expert care to people with terminal illnesses, as well as supporting their families.

Whether it’s worn in celebration, in solidarity or in memory of a loved one, #EveryDaffodil tells a story, and this year, Marie Curie's Great Daffodil Appeal is going on tour!

The Great Big Daffodil, a 7ft steel installation with specially designed paper books within its petals, is touring the country to bring people together from across the UK to share the stories of their loved ones.

Join us on 13-15 March inside The Gyle to share a memory, message, tribute, or simply the name or picture of someone special to you on the petals of the Great Big Daffodil.

If you can't visit the daffodil in person, share your memory or heartfelt message with us on social media using the hashtag #EveryDaffodil.

Your stories and tributes collected in Edinburgh will join others across the UK to create a Great Big Daffodil of memories in London on 20 March.

To see some of the memories shared and find more on how to support Marie Curie's Great Daffodil Appeal 2019, visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil/great-big-daffodil

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Marie Curie’s Great Big Daffodil are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
