Tagline What does your daffodil say ?

DLKW Lowe created the spot which features Alison Steadman, whose mother who died from cancer was cared for by Marie Curie nurses during her final months. The campaign highlights the daffodil as the emblem of the charity and the actress explains that she wears hers as a thank you to those nurses for their support. She asks “What does your daffodil say?” as viewers are asked to show their support for the charity by wearing a daffodil, whatever their reason.
