COLOURFUL charity collections will be taking place in Kidderminster and Stourport when volunteers go yellow for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
Collections will be at Morrisons in Kidderminster on Friday and Saturday.
The following Saturday, March 10, money can be donated in Kidderminster town centre and on High Street, Stourport.
Louise Wilcox of Crazy Daisies Bakery in Stourport will be doing the rounds, thanking volunteer collectors with bespoke yellow daffodil cupcakes.
Friday is also Wear Something Yellow to Work Day and daffodil pins can be bought from local stores, Marie Curie volunteer collectors, Marie Curie Shops and the charity’s website throughout March.
Volunteer fundraiser for Marie Curie, Debbie Mound said: “Every donation for a daffodil will help us to provide more free nursing care hours, allowing people to spend their final days in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by family and friends. So please support Marie Curie Nurses and help us make a difference by making a donation and wearing a daffodil in March.”
