Collections held at Morrisons and a Bridlington Street campaign raised £1,765 with all funds going towards enabling Marie Curie to care for more people living with a terminal illness, and their families.

Kelly Maton, Marie Curie community fundraiser in Bridlington said: “We were forced to cancel our public collections for the past two years due to the pandemic so we are even more grateful for the amazing support from shoppers and volunteers in Bridlington this year.

“Their generosity means we raised a fantastic amount for this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. Too many people don’t get the care and support they need at the end of their lives, but together we can change that.”
