The month-long fundraising appeal, which launched on March 1, saw volunteers out collecting donations for Marie Curie in return for a daffodil pin.

The volunteers in Portchester raised £130.58, £398.91 at Stubbington, £480.31 at Locks Heath and £755.43 in Fareham town, including Fareham Shopping Centre.

Wendy Savage, community fundraiser, said: ‘We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for helping to make every daffodil count, including Marie Curie’s Fareham and Portchester Fundraising Group.

‘The support from donating or being one of our amazing volunteers who collected donations, means that our nurses can care for someone in their own home. Thank you for helping make a difference.’
