MONTGOMERYSHIRE MS Russell George has lent his support to a charity’s work as he met Marie Curie staff at the Senedd.

Mr George joined forces with the Marie Curie Cymru Policy team, Lowri Griffiths and Bethan Edwards at a stand at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on Wednesday, 3 November, to highlight the leading end of life charity’s work.

Marie Curie Cymru provides care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones in their hospice and people’s homes.

As well lending his support, Russell is also encouraging people to start preparing for the National Day of Reflection by planting spring bulbs and seeds this autumn.

The flowers will bloom in time for the day on 23 March 2022.

Mr George said: “Talking about our end of life care wishes with our loved ones is so important to ensure they know how to best support us at our most vulnerable time, and I would encourage everyone to have that conversation as soon as they can.

“I also hope people across Montgomeryshire, no matter the size of their out-door space, and even inside, will plant a Spring Bulb for the National Day of Reflection and support Marie Curie.

“It’s been a difficult time, with many devastated by the death of a loved one and planting these bulbs and seeing the first shoots awaken can restore our hope for better times to come.”

Lowri Griffiths, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Wales, for Marie Curie, added: “To have the support of Russell makes a huge difference to Marie Curie.
