An hour of your time this March could turn into many hours of care for the terminally ill.
Marie Curie is holding its Great Daffodil Appeal, where volunteers offer daffodil pins for donations.
Every £20 raised pays for an hour’s care by a nurse in someone’s own home.
The appeal is being supported by BAFTA-winning actor Olivia Colman and Jim Carter, known for playing butler Mr Carson in Downton Abbey.
Tracey North, community fundraiser for Berkshire, said: “We need 200 people from the local area to help us collect this March.
“Collecting is a really enjoyable and rewarding experience and I hope everyone will help us make this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal a big success.”
To volunteer, visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil or call 01883 832649.
