Volunteers are being sought to act as collectors for Marie Curie as it launches its Great Daffodil Appeal.

The appeal is the charity’s biggest annual fund-raising campaign, taking place throughout February and March, and involves giving out daffodil pins in return for a donation.

Community fund-raiser Gary Burr said: “We are calling on the people of Grantham to help us make every daffodil count this year. All you have to do is encourage people to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, it’s that simple.

“So round up your friends, family and colleagues and together we can help Marie Curie Nurses provide vitals hands-on care and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.”

A number of dates are in the diary for collections in Grantham, with volunteers needed to give two hours of their time to help. They are:

n February 24-25, a street collection and stand in the Isaac Newton Shopping Centre;

n March 10-12, Morrisons;

n March 11, street collection;

n March 17, Isaac Newton Shopping Centre.

Money raised during the campaign will help Marie Curie nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness, and their families.
