Activity to raise money for Marie Curie Nurses

THERE are just four weeks to go for nurseries, primary schools and youth groups in South Yorkshire 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, learning about the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care and fundraising for the charity.

Register your school or group to take part by calling 08700 340 040 or visiting www.mariecurie.org.uk/minipotsofcare by October 7, 2011.

Mini Pots of Care is supported by premium express delivery company City Link, who deliver the kits to schools and groups free of charge.

All money raised from the activity will help Marie Curie Nurses to provide more free care to terminally ill people in their own homes.
