Charity collections carried out by the Lions Club of Leyland and Cuerden Valley in partnership with Marie Curie Cancer Care raise more than £1,000.

The Lions club collected at Tesco Extra in Leyland to help provide free nursing care to terminally ill patients in their own homes and Marie Curie hospices.

Lions Club President, Derek Westall is delighted with the amount raised.

He said: “Thanks to the generosity of local people we collected £1,110. 
“Every penny collected by Lions Clubs goes direct to good causes as our membership fees cover any administration costs.

“This means our Daffodil collection will help fund 55 hours of hands-on nursing care within our area.

“We are proud to be at the heart of the community, and our partnership with Marie Curie demonstrates how Lions Clubs offer vital support for local people”.

The Great Daffodil Appeal has huge public support and has raised more than £70 million since 1986.

Marie Curie Cancer Care chose Lions Clubs British Isles & Ireland to be its first official partner for the Great Daffodil Appeal last year to help raise an additional £1 million.
