Daff is quite a draw in Harleston

MORE than �1,360 was raised for Marie Curie Cancer Care, thanks to the generosity of shoppers in Harleston - and a giant daffodil walking up and down the high street.

The �1,364 figure was achieved during a street collection, organised by John and Rosetta Ellis, of Pulham St Mary, last Friday and Saturday (February 27 and 28) and beats last year's figure of about �980.

Mrs Ellis, who got involved in fundraising for Marie Curie after her cousin died from prostate cancer a few years ago, said: 'I just want to say thank you to the people in Harleston who have supported us and given their money so generously, and to the collectors, who were a great team.'

More volunteers are needed to help raise money for Marie Curie. If you would like to help, call Mr and Mrs Ellis on 01379 676549.
