A charity is on the lookout for volunteers in Wisbech for their annual appeal.
Marie Curie needs volunteers to encourage people in the local community to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin.
The money raised from the Great Daffodil Appeal, which takes place next month, will help Marie Curie Nurses care for people with a terminal illness in their own home.
Holly Vasey, community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Cambridgeshire, said: “The Great Daffodil Appeal makes it possible for Marie Curie Nurses to provide free hands-on care for people with a terminal illness.
“Every March millions of people across the UK show their support for our work by simply giving a donation to wear a daffodil pin.
“We need as many people as possible to donate their time to help us make sure everyone is wearing a daffodil pin, so we can continue providing this vital care for local people.”
Gordon Taylor, of Wisbech, said: “I collected for the Great Daffodil Appeal for the first time last year and I really felt like I was making a difference.
