LOCAL Marie Curie Nurses and fundraisers are thanking everyone who have played a part in making the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal a success this year.

An enormous amount of fundraising activity has taken take place up and down the country, since the month long appeal launched on March 1.

Volunteer collectors and businesses were out across Sussex to encourage people to wear a daffodil pin and make a donation to support Marie Curie Nurses.

Money raised from the appeal helps Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.

Local Marie Curie Community Fundraiser Hollie Lucas said: “We are so grateful for the support shown by the people of Lewes for this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. The appeal could not have taken place without the help of local volunteers who have worked very hard to raise funds and awareness of the work of Marie Curie Nurses.

“Although we do not have final figures yet, early indications suggest that the fundraising is on track with last year’s appeal which raised over £5million across the UK.”
