’Garden of Light’ illuminates London to launch Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal
Terminal illness charity Marie Curie is to unveil a ‘Garden of Light’ of 4,000 illuminated daffodils in London’s Paternoster Square to mark the launch of the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal.
The immersive art installation will be open to the public from Thursday 1st until Sunday 11th March and will allow visitors to walk through the daffodils and stained-glass structure, creating a place for personal reflection and calm. The space will include a trail of sculptural daffodils, inspired by the charity’s emblem, which will emerge from the flower beds, each individually designed by artists and famous faces.
While walking amongst the 4,000 daffodils, visitors can listen to letters from patient’s families, describing the vital care and support their relatives received from Marie Curie Nurses.
