Help support charity appeal
A CARE worker who helps people with cancer in Poynton is urging residents to get behind the annual Great Daffodil Appeal.
Pam Crompton, a Marie Curie healthcare assistant, is asking people to donate or collect for Marie Curie’s fundraising campaign which takes place throughout March.
The charity asks people to make a donation in return for a daffodil pin.
All funds raised help Marie Curie nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones, in their own home.
Pam, who cares for people across east Cheshire including Poynton, said: “I’d like to encourage everyone to get behind the daffodil appeal to help me and my colleagues to care for people in their own homes in Macclesfield.
“I just love collecting and helping to raise funds for such a brilliant cause. As a Marie Curie healthcare assistant I see where the money goes, which is why I do my bit to help during the collections.”
Jessica Herrington, community fundraiser for the charity, said: “We are calling on the people of Poynton to get behind us in March for the 30th annual Great Daffodil Appeal.
“Help us raise more money than ever before by simply giving a donation and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil pin. Every penny donated helps Marie Curie nurses like Pam provide free care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.”
