As a blogger, it’s great to be able to support charity campaigns and spread the word about how we can all help a little. From 9th March to the 5th April, each time you buy from selected P&G products including brands such as Olay, Gillette and Oral-B in your local Superdrug or online at Superdrug.com, you will trigger a donation to Marie Curie; the UK’s leading charity caring for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
One product = one donation
After the 5th April, a selection of products which bear the Marie Curie logo on pack, or at shelf, including brands like Max Factor, Olay, Gillette and Oral-B will continue to trigger donations. For more information, visit www.superdrug.com/feelsuper.
Frankie Bridge, The Saturdays singer and celebrity mum of two, is making an appeal to people across the UK to support the Superdrug and P&G #FeelSuper Campaign, which hopes to raise £200,000 for Marie Curie in 2016.
Frankie says, “This is a really special charity which I’ve supported for many years and I’m very excited to be working with Marie Curie again through the #FeelSuper campaign. What I love about the campaign is that it’s so easy to get involved, it’s as simple as buying your everyday essentials from Superdrug, without putting anything over and above what you usually put in your shopping basket. For lots of people, it’s the little treats like a new lipstick or favourite moisturiser that helps them to feel super. Now those everyday pick me ups can make them to #FeelSuper knowing they are helping others too. One product = one donation.”
Last year the #FeelSuper campaign raised over £200,000 for Marie Curie, helping to fund more than 10,000 hours of vital care and support for people living with a terminal illness – or the equivalent of 10 Marie CurieNurses for a year. Whether it’s providing hands-on care and vital emotional support for someone at home, complementary therapies at a Marie Curie hospice or simply making a cup of tea for a family member, often it’s the little, every day things that these Marie Curie Nurses do that make a big difference.
Melissa Tiley-Waters, one of the Marie Curie Nurses who joined Frankie at the shoot, said: “It’s been great to be able to join Frankie in helping raise awareness of this wonderful campaign. When someone is terminally ill, having the support of a Marie Curie Nurse can make a huge difference to them and their family. One of the things I spend my time doing when I’m caring for my patients is simply talking to family members and carers. Just having someone there, to share their thoughts and worries with, really helps at such a difficult time. All of the money raised by #FeelSuper will go a long way in helping Marie Curie reach many more people living with a terminal illness around the country and we, as nurses, hope everyone joins us in getting behind the campaign.”
