Proud to yet again be part of the 'Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal’

It was great to yet again be part of the ‘Great Daffodil Appeal’ raising much needed funds to help Marie Curie Nurses care for people with cancer and other terminal illnesses. Five wonderful ladies and I gave two hours of our time in Howden dressed ‘appropriately’ in yellow hats and tabards raising money by handing out small cotton lapel daffodils. In the two hours we managed to raise £405.73

This was followed by lunch with the five ladies who turned out to be ‘ladies who lunch’ - to be in the company of not one, not two, not even three, nor four, but FIVE charming ladies has made my whole week!

Special thanks to the local Marie Curie fundraising superstar that is local Pauline Hornsey for organising everything – she is certainly one of my heroes!

I have again committed to the Humber Bridge midnight walk during the summer – and promised Pauline that this year I will take part dressed as Elvis!
