Olenick Supports Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal – Belfast
We are more than IT! It is very important to us at Olenick to give back to our communities. In addition to supporting a great cause our team grows stronger with every event we partake in. This March our Belfast office was part of the The Great Daffodil Appeal. The Olenick Belfast team sported yellow daffodil pins and collected £800.00 with their efforts. Funds collected go towards supporting and raising awareness for Marie Curie’s cause.
At the conclusion of The Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie’s Belfast collection earnings totaled over £20,000, surpassing last year’s collection by 25%. All donations to Marie Curie give its nurses the opportunity to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes or one of their nine hospices throughout the UK.
