Dig those daffodils for Marie Curie Cancer Care
12:00am Friday 28th September 2012 in News
MARIE Curie Cancer Care is inviting local children aged three to 11 to get their hands dirty by growing daffodils for the charity’s Mini Pots of Care fundraising activity.
The children will plant bulbs in their own mini pots in the autumn and care for them throughout the winter months, to reflect the work of Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to patients with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.
In the spring, children celebrate their daffodils in bloom by holding a Mini Pots of Care Fundraising Day when they have fun painting their pots, fundraising and learning about the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
To register your school or group phone 0845 052 4184 or visiting www.mariecurie.org.uk/minipotsofcare by October 5.
