Lions volunteers collecting cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care
12:30pm Friday 8th March 2013 in News
The charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal encourages everyone to give a donation and wear the charity’s iconic daffodil pin during March.
Lions clubs members will support the appeal this year by collecting donations today, and Saturday, March 9 in Tesco, Easton, Portland and encouraging people to wear the daffodil pin. Every £20 raised will to help to fund an hour of Marie Curie nursing care, which is provided free of charge to more than 600 people with terminal cancer and other illnesses every year in their own homes in Dorset.
Amy Llewellyn, community fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “We are very excited to have support from our local Lions clubs.
As an organisation that works to serve the community, we’re confident they will help make this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal the best yet.
“However, we still need many more volunteers in the Weymouth area – so please get in touch if you have an hour to spare in March.
“Just one or two hours of your time will help Marie Curie nurse more local people with terminal illness.”
