About the Garden of Light, Belfast Castle

To mark the launch of the Great Daffodil Appeal, we unveiled a garden of 300 illuminated daffodils at Belfast Castle which was open to visitors in March 2018.

The unique installation overlooked the best views in the city, and featured 300 lit daffodils. These represented all the people affected by terminal illness who were helped by Marie Curie in Northern Ireland in March 2018.

The lit daffodils demonstrated the light that the nurses bring to terminally people across Northern Ireland, even in the darkest hours - whether that's through nursing or hospice care, or information and support.

Our nurses can only be there for families living with terminal illness thanks to the support of people like you. Please show your support by donating and wearing your daffodil.

Every daffodil counts

Gary Hunter received support from Marie Curie in Northern Ireland

Gary Hunter from Comber helped launch the Belfast Garden of Light. He was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2008. By supporting the Great Daffodil Appeal, you'll be helping more people like him.

"I attend Marie Curie Day Therapy once a week and the difference it makes to the lives of those of us living with life-limiting conditions is remarkable. I wear my daffodil with pride.”
