Charity urges people to think of all others

Have your say

A CHARITY’S nurses have thanked everyone involved in supporting their latest appeal.

Marie Curie’s 2017 Great Daffodil Appeal, which launched in March, saw volunteers collecting donations for the charity in return for a daffodil pin.

All funds raised throughout March will help the nurses provide vital care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones, in their own homes.

A total of £825.79 was raised in Portsmouth and Southsea, including at Cascades Shopping Centre.

More than £1,100 was also collected at Tesco and Morrisons stores around the city.

Wendy Savage, community fundraiser, said: ‘We’d like to thank everyone for helping to make every daffodil count.

‘Those involved have helped to make a difference to people at the end of their lives, when they need it most.’
