AN ICONIC landmark was last week bathed in a yellow light in support of charity.

The Kelpies were lit up in support of Marie Curie last Thursday, February 27, to help kick start the charity’s main appeal month in March.

The Great Daffodil Appeal is the good cause’s biggest fundraising campaign each year with money used to support and care for people with a terminal illness.

In the local Forth Valley area, Marie Curie nurses like Joyce Hope made 313 visits to care for people in their own homes last year.

Joyce, a senior healthcare assistant with the charity, said: “I will always remember my first visit at Marie Curie.

“I was caring for a young mum overnight and her twin girls were starting school the next day.

“They came in all excited in the morning and mum was able to go in the car with them thanks to a good night’s sleep.

“A few weeks later I received a letter from the twins telling me their mummy was in heaven watching them and they drew me a picture of flowers.

“It was so special to receive that card and all these years later, that’s stayed with me.”

Visit to support the Great Daffodil Appeal either by donating, collecting or fundraising and more.
