A Daventry woman is urging for others to join Marie Curie and collect for the charity’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal this March.

The charity needs volunteers to encourage people in the local community to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin. Funds raised help its nurses care for people with a terminal illness in their own home.

Elinor Bishopp from Daventry said: “I collected for the Great Daffodil Appeal for the first time last year and I really felt like I was making a difference. So many people approach you to tell you about the support they’ve received from Marie Curie Nurses and the difference it made. It was a great feeling when we counted up all the coins at the end of the day and saw how much we’d raised. It’s nice to know you’re helping other people.”
