Keira Knightley, Stephen Mangan support Marie Curie Cancer Care daffodil drive

Filed by Lucire staff/January 11, 2013/21.57

One of our most searched-for celebrities, Keira Knightley, isn’t looking quite as glamorous, compared with our previous pics, in her latest photo for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity in the UK. But this is a more serious matter, and the focus should be on the charity rather than what she’s wearing. Knightley is lending her voice to support the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal, which takes place in March, selling its daffodil pins.
   Stephen Mangan is participating in the charity drive alongside Knightley, and both appear in a radio commercial.
   In the commercial, Knightley is asking for additional volunteers to collect money for the Appeal, while Mangan talks of his late parents, both of whom were cared for by Marie Curie nurses.
   ‘When Marie Curie nurses were caring for my Mum, I used to sit by her bed and play the guitar, very badly I might add. We had many comedy moments at home with both Mum and Dad but that just wouldn’t have been possible on a hospital ward,’ he said.
   ‘I’m from a large extended Irish family and my parents were very much the focal point, so having a Marie Curie nurse there to look after them meant that we could be the family we are without having to worry about anything.’
   Volunteers for the annual appeal can sign up at the Marie Curie Cancer Care website.
