Barry Training Services Ltd (BTS) from Wales has donated £1,000 – to raise funds in aid of Marie Curie this Christmas and for the Great Daffodil Appeal.

Each year, BTS purchase personalised stationery that they send to their customers – but this year decided the money would be put to better use and donated it to charity.

The cash will help Marie Curie Nurses at the Penarth hospice provide vital care and support for local people living with a terminal illness, and their families, helping them make the most of the time they have together.

Over Christmas, they will spend time away from their own loved ones to care for people living with a terminal illness, in their own home.

Christmas can be an especially difficult time for people with a terminal illness. The Marie Curie Support Line (0800 090 2309) provides free, confidential support and practical information and will be open throughout the festive period – including Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Sean Boyle of BTS said: “Each year, as a thank you for their custom, we send out personalised stationery to our customers, I felt that this year, we should do something more positive, and Marie Curie came to mind.

“After the fantastic care that my grandfather received from them, I wanted to make sure that we could give something back. By sending out these daffodils to our customers this Christmas, we are not only showing our support for Marie Curie, but hopefully highlighting their impact to other people too – and encouraging them to support when the Great Daffodil Appeal comes around in February’’.
