An urgent plea for volunteers in the Diss Express area to help collect donations for Marie Curie Cancer Care has been issued ahead of the beginning of the charity’s major annual appeal.
Volunteers are needed to assist in organised collections at various supermarkets in the area in aid of the Great Daffodil Appeal, which will raise money for the 26 Marie Curie Nurses currently working in Norfolk.
Paul Fleet, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie in Norfolk, said: “The Great Daffodil Appeal makes it possible for Marie Curie Nurses to provide free hands-on care for people with a terminal illness in Norfolk.
“From experience, I know the people of Diss are fantastic at giving their support to good causes. We urgently need as many people as possible in the Diss area to help us. Any help you can give would be really appreciated.”
Dominic Blake, a past volunteer from Palgrave, said: “I collected for the Great Daffodil Appeal for the first time last year and I really felt like I was making a difference.
“So many people approach you to tell you about the support they’ve received from Marie Curie Nurses and the difference it made.”
