Marie Curie Cancer Care are looking to Banff and Buchan as they prepare to organise a fundraising activity to support their ongoing charity work.
There are just a few weeks to go for nurseries, primary schools and youth groups in the Banff and Buchan area to sign up for Marie Curie Cancer Care’s ‘Mini Pots of Care’ fundraising activity.
Mini Pots of Care is a free, creative and educational project for 3-11-year-olds where children receive a pot and daffodil bulb to plant in the autumn.
They care for their plant throughout the winter months and then, in the spring, they celebrate their daffodils in bloom by holding a Mini Pots of Care Day where they have fun painting their pots and learning about the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care and fundraising for the charity.
Register your school or group to take part by calling 08450524184 or visiting www.mariecurie.org.uk/minipotsofcare by October 5, 2012.
All money raised from the activity will help Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to terminally ill people in their own homes.
The 2,000 nurse sof the charity reached a total of 31,799 patients in the financial year 2010/11.
The charity also operates nine hospices in the United Kingdom and, as well as funding external research programmes, provides research into the best way to care for people with terminal illnesses.
