A CHARITY campaign is blooming after the launch of its Daffodil Appeal.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is hoping to boost funds by getting people to wear daffodils in support of the cause.

Volunteers from around Scarborough have been in the town centre and at supermarkets selling pins.

Michael Streets, Scarborough Marie Curie community fundraiser, 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.

“Please support Marie Curie Nurses and help us make a difference by making a donation and wearing a daffodil in March.

“I would also like to thank all the volunteers who are giving up their spare time to help with our collections and support the charity.”

After kicking off the fundraising with a collection at the Brunswick Shopping Centre on Saturday, further collections will be held until the end of March.
