Marie Curie appeals for White Rose Centre volunteers

Marie Curie Cancer Care is appealing to people to donate something a little different this spring – a couple of hours of their time.

The charity is looking for volunteers to offer their help at Sainsburys in the White Rose Shopping Centre on February 27 as part of it’s Great Daffodil Appeal 2015 appeal.

Money raised at these collections will help fund the local nursing service and every volunteer will be helping to make a real difference to terminally ill people in their own community.

This year local fundraisers in West Yorkshire are hoping to raise more than £55,000 from over 150 Great Daffodil Appeal collections across the area – which will provide the equivalent of a staggering 2,700 hours of Marie Curie Nursing Care.

Local fundraiser Katie Grinter said: “We have collection dates booked at a number of venues and would really appreciate help from local people in making sure we raise as much money as possible from these. You’ll be surprised by how much you can raise in just a couple of hours and every daffodil badge exchanged for a donation will help us to provide more nursing care to people terminally ill at home. We want to get as many people as possible wearing daffodils this March so if you think you are able to give just two hours to help collect at a venue near you in the coming months then please feel free to contact me on either or on 01274 386190.”
