●● MARIE Curie is ap­peal­ing for peo­ple in Poyn­ton to do­nate their time to col­lect for the char­ity’s an­nual Great Daf­fodil Ap­peal this March.

The char­ity needs vol­un­teers to en­cour­age peo­ple in the com­mu­nity to give a do­na­tion and wear a daf­fodil pin.

The money raised from the Great Daf­fodil Ap­peal will help Marie Curie Nurses care for peo­ple with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness in their own home, so they can spend more time with the peo­ple they love.

In Poyn­ton there are col­lec­tions at Poyn­ton Mor­risons on March 6-8 and Brook­side Gar­den Cen­tre on March 13-15.

Jes­sica Her­ring­ton, com­mu­nity fundraiser for Marie Curie in Poyn­ton, said: “The Great Daf­fodil Ap­peal makes it pos­si­ble for Marie Curie Nurses to pro­vide free hands-on care for peo­ple with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness. Ev­ery March, mil­lions of peo­ple across the UK show their sup­port for our work.

“We need as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to do­nate their time, so we can con­tinue pro­vid­ing this vi­tal care for lo­cal peo­ple.

“On av­er­age a col­lec­tor can col­lect £80 ev­ery two hours, which pays for four nurs­ing hours, so any time you can give re­ally does mat­ter.”
