End-of-life charity Marie Curie issues a 'big thank you' to the people of Alness and Easter Ross after its successful Great Daffodil Appeal.

Through collections in Morrisons, Alness, £1200 was raised which will help to provide vital care and support to people living with a terminal illness.

The appeal, held every March, asks people to donate to the charity and wear a daffodil pin to spread awareness of the charity.

This years launch was marked with a daffodil artwork created with tea lights.

Jillian Walker, Marie Curie community fundraiser in north Scotland, said: "We were forced to cancel our public collections for the past two years due to the pandemic so we are even more grateful for the amazing support from shoppers and volunteers at Morrisons, Alness this year.

"Their generosity means we raised a fantastic amount for this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal. Too many people don’t get the care and support they need at the end of their lives, but together we can change that.”
