Leeds Building Society customers raise 1,200 pounds for Marie Curie

Leeds Building Society’s branches have raised £1,200 for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal, by selling daffodil pin badges this spring.


These vital funds will help Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to people living with terminal illnesses in their own homes across Yorkshire and in the charity’s Bradford hospice.


Siobhan Drane, Partnership Manager at Marie Curie, said: “The Great Daffodil Appeal is our biggest annual fundraising campaign and we’re extremely grateful to Leeds Building Society and their members for their ongoing support.


Trevor Garside, Leeds Building Society’s Head of Direct Distribution, said: “The Great Daffodil Appeal has again been very popular across our branches.


“Customers have been very generous again this spring, and our colleagues in the branch network also got into the spirit throughout the campaign.”
