An estimated 50,000 daffodil bulbs will be planted in over 50 Helm Housing schemes across Northern Ireland in the coming weeks, offering a symbol of hope
to hundreds of local people who are living with end-of-life illnesses and who depend on Marie Curie Cancer Care for support for themselves and their families.
The 'Fields of Hope' campaign encourages local businesses, members of the community and schoolchildren to plant daffodils for the local charity. When the flowers bloom in spring, the public sites become a sea of yellow, raising awareness for Marie Curie Cancer Care throughout communities in Northern Ireland.
Anne Hannan, Corporate Development Manager for Marie Curie Cancer Care said, "We are just delighted to have the support of Helm Housing and look forward to working in partnership with them for the next two years."
Jean Fuiteon, Group Chief Executive of Helm Housing, addedt: "Our work is not just about housing — it's about homes and communities. We are committed to implementing a corporate social responsibility strategy and actively encourage and support Helin employees to make a positive impact to the wider community through Employer Supported Volunteering.'
