THE High Wycombe Lions Club will be collecting money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care in Tesco next week.

Lions members will be at Tesco Loudwater on March 20 and 21 to collect money from shoppers for the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

Lions Club president, Steve Baskerville, said: “We can fund one hour of free care for someone in High Wycombe by raising just £20.

“Giving a small donation and wearing the iconic Marie Curie daffodil pin really can make a big difference. Our members are pleased to help such a worthwhile appeal.”

The Lions are the charity’s official partner for The Great Daffodil Appeal which has raised more than £70m since its launch in 1986.

Hazel Bendon, Community Fundraiser for Buckinghamshire at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “Terminal illnesses touch everyone and Lions fund-raising will enable Marie Curie to deliver additional nursing care from the generosity of local people in High Wycombe.”
