Sandringham Primary School at Doncaster supported this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal and collected £168 from donations for Marie Curie daffodil pin badges.

Volunteer Pat Gilmore confirmed the school’s was the highest total in daffodil box donations in Doncaster this year.

Katie Grinter, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie, said: ‘We visited the school this week to thank the children and teachers for all their support with the Great Daffodil Appeal this year. Sandringham Primary School has raised enough money to fund a full night of Marie Curie nursing to care for someone with a terminal illness in the comfort of their own home.’
