Supporters and celebrities share their Great Daffodil Appeal stories
The Great Daffodil Appeal has had another fantastic week on social media, with celebrities and supporters alike sharing their posts and pics online. We've picked some of the top tweets and posts and you'll find them below. There are just four days left until the end of The Great Daffodil Appeal 2014, but there’s still time to support us! Simply donate and wear a daffodil.
Celebs wear theirs
We caught up with our team of daffodil-wearing celebrity supporters. Our video montage attracted lots of likes. And impressionist and Marie Curie supporter Jon Culshaw made his own spoof video just for us.
In anticipation of Mother’s Day this Sunday, we asked for mum-themed appeal pics, and our followers shared some lovely images.

Actor's daff takes a tour
Scottish actor and Marie Curie marathon runner Sean Biggerstaff wore his on a bus, in a café and at the British Library and tweeted the results (although he couldn’t take a pic in the library!)

Players pull on yellow shirts
Ice hockey team the Belfast Giants went yellow for Marie Curie, with players kitted out in bright shirts and Great Daffodil Appeal collectors at the gates. Thanks to the team and to our partners Tayto!
Also in Belfast, Judith Johnston Dawson, collecting with friends and family, had help from an unexpected source. An assistant in a gadget shop opposite deployed this daffed-up remote-control minion to persuade passers-by to donate and wear a daffodil. Thanks for posting, Judith!
Our doggy pals moved on from posing with daffs to getting out on the streets to collect for the appeal. Oscar, out collecting with Jenny Bremner and Hazel Chapman, looks like he's taking his role very seriously.
