For the second year running, New Covent Garden’s Flower Market has supported the Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection helping to raise funds for the appeal and donating 500 bunches of daffodils to front-line Marie Curie hospice workers. The National Day of Reflection led by the charity Marie Curie, took place on Wednesday 23 March and was a day for the UK to come together to reflect on our collective loss, support those who've been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

Rebecca Barrett, head of strategy, partnerships and communications at Covent Garden Market Authority said: "Daffodils symbolize hope, joy and positivity, so we’re pleased to be able to support Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection by giving patients and front line staff a beautiful bunch of British daffodils to provide comfort and brighten their day. After supporting Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection last year, we’re proud that our market community is coming together once again to reflect and support those who’ve been bereaved by putting a smile on their faces.”
The daffodil is the symbol of Marie Curie who supply vital care and support for anyone affected by a terminal illness, as well as supporting their friends and family. They urgently need support with an increased need for their services, and it is vital they can continue to be there and working in the best way for the people who need them most.
