MARIE Curie Cancer Care is appealing for people in Ellesmere Port to donate an hour of their time to collect for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal next month.

The appeal is Marie Curie’s biggest fundraiser and encourages everyone to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin in March.

The money raised will help Marie Curie nurses provide free care to people with a terminal illness in their own homes.

Holly Smith, community fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care in Ellesmere Port, said: “We need more than 600 people from Cheshire and North Staffordshire to help with our collections this March.

“Donating just one or two hours of your time to the appeal will allow Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.”

There will be collections in Ellesmere Port at Asda, Wellington Road, on Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16; Sainsbury’s, Kinsey Road, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 8-10; and The Port Arcades Shopping Centre on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 22-24.
