Marie Curie Cancer

This month we have been raising money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care Charity. Y4 have been selling daffodils as part of the Great Daffodil Campaign which is run each year.

Marie Curie Nurses care for around 50 per cent of all cancer patients who die at home. They work through the night or during the day to provide care for patients in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own home. Nurses are also there for families and carers - providing practical and emotional support at what can be an exhausting time. Marie Curie Nursing is always free of charge to patients and carers.

At Newport we think this is a really worthwhile charity to support and so far we have raised over £14 by selling daffodils.
