Droitwich Lions Club supports cancer charity
8:40am Wednesday 26th February 2014 in Local
MEMBERS of Droitwich Lions Club are set to collect cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care's Great Daffodil Appeal.
People from the group will be at Droitwich Spa's Morrisons store on Saturday, March 15 asking for donations.
Every penny collected will be spent in the community helping to provide free nursing care to terminally ill patients in their own homes and Marie Curie hospices.
Lions Club president, Bill Phillips, said: “We can fund one hour of free nursing care for someone in Droitwich by raising just £20. Giving a small donation and wearing the iconic Marie Curie daffodil pin really can make a big difference.”
Alysia Cameron-Price, community fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “Cancer and other terminal illnesses touch everyone and Lions fundraising will enable Marie Curie to deliver additional nursing care which would not be provided without the generosity of local people in Droitwich.”
The Great Daffodil Appeal has huge public support and has raised more than £70 million since 1986. Marie Curie Cancer Care chose Lions Clubs British Isles & Ireland to be its first official partner for the Great Daffodil Appeal last year to help reach a target of £1 million over three years.
