KIND-HEARTED residents of Wrench Green, near Hackness, have dug deep to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The group planted daffodil bulbs on a triangular plot in the hamlet after collecting donations from members of the community.

Organiser Glynis Francis said: “We raised £100, minus the cost of the bulbs, and everyone enjoyed planting them.

“We had a beautiful sunny morning and we planted nearly 1,000 bulbs.

“We were there from 10am to noon and everyone came back for a coffee afterwards to warm up.”

Mrs Francis added that all the residents are now looking forward to seeing the daffodils break through in the Spring - particularly as the daffodil is Marie Curie’s emblem.

They are glad to have been able to make a donation towards the charity and help promote their work.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is dedicated to the care of people with terminal cancer and other illnesses.

The charity provides nursing care allowing people to be looked after in their own home throughout the night.
