On Monday 8th March, International Women’s Day, Mims Davies MP was on the despatch box answering questions under her role as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Mims gladly wore a daffodil in support of the Marie Curie Memorial Foundation, a charity very close to her heart. Since its beginning in 1930 Marie Curie have always respected women’s rights and recognised that they were underappreciated in society, resulting in the establishment of a hospital that helped women suffering from terminal illnesses.
Marie Curie has helped thousands of residents with the end of life care and continue to make a significant contribution to medical research. Mims would encourage all who can to donate in March to help the care of families affected by terminal illness. In the month of March, we have celebrated International Women’s Day and we also have Mother’s Day on Sunday 14th March.
Commenting Mims Davies MP for Mid Sussex, said:
“Donating to Marie Curie would be a great way to support women all around the world and remembering all those mother’s that will be missed on Mothering Sunday. I will be missing my mother dearly and hope the donation I have made will help another person spend a longer time with their loved one.”
It takes a special type of human to devote their lives to helping others and Mims would like to encourage all to donate and support in any way they can. Usually, many of us donate via small local sops or the person outside the train station! However, it is a bit different this year and you can donate via https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil/donate
