March with Madam Curie Is your dance club looking for a
fun challenge in 2013?
Join hundreds of groups around the UK this March raising money
for Marie Curie Cancer Care’s
Great Daffodil Appeal by holding a Daffodil Dance. Your dance
can be anything that takes your fancy, you could hold a
performance, danceathon or a dance event for the local
community, anything goes.
To help you along the way, some of the UK’s top choreographers
have provided exclusive dance steps, including some Modern Jive ones. All the
details are at http://www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodildance,
together with the steps. Register your event and you’ll also
receive a fundraising pack bursting with ideas to make your Daffodil Dance a swinging
Norma Read of East Coast Liners has been holding Daffodil Dances with her
dance group for the past six years. She says, “We’ve already
signed up for next year’s event because our Daffodil Dance this year was
such a fun night. Everyone wore yellow or daffodils and danced
the night away. Our efforts also raised a fantastic £1,200
through sponsorship, a buffet and a raffle.”
For every donation given and every daffodil worn, Marie Curie is
able to provide even more free care to terminally ill people
across the UK. The Great
Daffodil Appeal, with the help of volunteers and
supporters, ensures that we can continue to provide the right
care and support to terminally ill people and their families. So
get your groove on and be part of making this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal the
biggest to date.
And don’t forget to wear your
daffodil this March.
