Spar aims to sell 250000 bunches of daffodils in aid of Marie Curie
Spar stores the length and breadth of the UK are selling bunches of fresh daffodils in support of Marie Curie and its 2020 Great Daffodil Appeal. Bright and cheerful freshly cut daffodils are now on sale in SPAR stores all over the UK at only £1 for the duration of the flower season. Ten pence from the sale of each bouquet will be donated to the terminal illness charity Marie Curie. Alex Hall, SPAR UK Marketing Manager said: “We are thrilled to be able to support our national charity partner Marie Curie with this beautiful initiative. Our aim is to sell 250,000 bunches of daffodils and raise a huge amount of money for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal. “This initiative is set to be our biggest fundraising activity since our partnership began in 2017 and it’s great to have the full support of SPAR retailers and wholesalers. “We are delighted that our customers can raise money for Marie Curie by shopping at SPAR. Every bunch of daffodils sold will help Marie Curie be there for more families who need them during the toughest of times,” he added. Tom Heron, Senior Partnership Manager at Marie Curie said: “We are incredibly excited to be working with SPAR UK on this brand-new promotion for our Great Daffodil Appeal this year. SPAR stores across the country are always so enthusiastic in getting behind the appeal, and with this year promising to be our biggest year yet, we’re grateful to both SPAR and their customers for supporting the promotion during such a vital time for Marie Curie’s support. “Every bunch of daffodils sold will ensure Marie Curie can continue to provide essential support across the UK for people with a terminal illness and their families. A huge thank you to everyone at SPAR!” Hundreds of SPAR stores will be supporting Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal with a host of in-store activities and is being supported by marketing and digital collateral with additional communication created for Mother’s Day to strengthen message in March.
