Weston’s branch of Yorkshire Building Society is relying on ‘flower power’ as it tries to raise £1million in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The company’s local agency in Weston-super-Mare, Four Fifty Partnership, wants people to ‘get behind the daffodil’ this month by wearing a daffodil pin in support of Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

Every £20 raised during the campaign will help fund one hour of nursing care by a Marie Curie nurse.

Nick Gravell from Four Fifty Partnership, said: “By supporting our Hour of Need campaign and this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal you will be helping to provide nursing care for people with a terminal illness in their hour of need. Sadly, most of us know someone who has been affected by terminal illness but wearing a daffodil pin can help make a difference.

“We have been overwhelmed by the level of support people in Weston have shown for the Hour of Need campaign, but we know we can do more.”
