At Annabel’s Deliciously British, we are strong advocates for giving back to our society. As well as supporting the Prince’s Trust, we also donate a portion of our proceeds from daffodil sales to Marie Curie each year. A cause we care deeply about.
About Marie Curie
Marie Curie is the UK’s leading end-of-life charity which provides a variety of services, from hospice care to frontline nursing and free support lines. Ultimately, they fight for a world where we can all live our best life, right to the end.
They support people through the final stages of their life, whether that be by providing the best at-home nursing support or providing specialist care from a hospice. Their bereavement service is there to then support those impacted by bereavement.
Marie Curie ran their first daffodil appeal in Scotland in 1986 and the appeal continued to grow throughout the 1990s when they incorporated the daffodil into their logo. Daffodils. and Marie Curie are now synonymous with each other.
It is having experienced their support first-hand, that made Marie Curie the charity of choice for Annabel’s Deliciously British. With each sale of our daffodil bouquets, a proportion of sales gets donated to the charity.
Close to our Hearts
“Supporting cancer patients and the work Marie Curie do is a cause very close to our hearts. My own mother fought cancer and we’re very fortunate that she’s still here with us. It was during this difficult time that we experienced the kindness and outstanding support that Marie Curie offer.
I knew that I wanted to give back to this wonderful charity and I do this by donating a proportion of daffodil sales each year. We’ll look forward to continuing our support of Marie Curie this season and beyond.” – Annabel Makin-Jones, founder of Annabel’s Deliciously British.
These unmistakable sunshine-yellow blooms brighten our homes and gardens every spring. In fact, over 90% of the world’s daffodils are supplied by Great Britain and they’ve been seen here since the 17th Century.
Over 27,000 cultivated varieties of daffodil can encompass every colour from cream to bright orange. These iconic British flowers are as exquisite in bouquets and vases as they are outside, which is why we redefined them for the luxury flower market.
Our daffodils are grown using a holistic approach, supporting biodiversity and soil health. This helps produce the best, most vibrant specimens of British daffodils from January to April each year.
