Northern Rail have announced their backing to a national charity’s campaign.

Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil campaign runs throughout March and Northern rail is encouraging employees to donate an hour of their time to sell daffodil pins to customers at its stations, including Preston railway station.

It is also raising awareness of the campaign and ways to donate with trains wearing specially designed daffodil badges throughout March, posters appearing at stations and on trains and supporting via social media.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Northern, said: “We are delighted to support Marie Curie and the work the charity does to provide essential nursing care for people with a terminal illness.

“Every community in our network is covered by the Marie Curie nursing service and last year it provided more than 10,000 people across our region with specialist nursing care.

“We manage hundreds of stations, so we can give our customers and our employees the chance to make a difference to this fantastic charity to help people in our communities and their loved ones, during the precious final days.”
