Luisa Grey, Eazipayâ€™s Director, comments, â€œMarie Curie Cancer Care is a magnificent charity and we were delighted to have had the opportunity to support its Great Daffodil Appeal through our association with Bacs.
â€œWeâ€™d like to thank all of our customers who played a key role in promoting the campaign and encouraging their customers to sign up to Direct Debit. Their feedback and support has been fantastic and crucial to the success of our fundraising.â€
