Blooming appeal for charity.

DAFFODILS are blooming early for the launch of the Great Daffodil Appeal.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is appealing for people in the North East to donate an hour of their time this March to collect for the charity's annual appeal.

The appeal is Marie Curie's biggest fundraiser, which encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin during the month.

The charity needs volunteer collectors to encourage people in the local community to wear a daffodil pin and give a donation. The money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

Charlotte Flowers, community fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care in Newcastle said: "We need as many people as possible to help with our collections this March.

"Donating just one or two hours of your time to the appeal will allow Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to terminally-ill people and their families at the time when they most need support."

To volunteer to collect for Marie Curie Cancer Care and support the Great Daffodil Appeal, call 0191 219 1241 or visit the website www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil.
