EIGHTY-nine hours of nursing will be provided by a charity thanks to the generosity of people in Havant, Waterlooville and Hayling Island.

Officials at Marie Curie, which cares for people with terminal illnesses in their own homes or hospices, is thanking people after raising almost £1,800 in donations.

The cash came from the charity’s month-long Great Daffodil Appeal during March.

Volunteers were out in force throughout the area to encourage people to make a donation and wear the charity’s daffodil pin to support people with a terminal illness.

More than £637 was raised in Waterlooville, around £182 on Hayling Island, and a bucket at Tesco in Havant raised more than £969.

Wendy Savage, community fundraiser, said: ‘We would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who has supported Marie Curie and helped to make this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal such a big success.’
