Flower power to raise funds
Norwich and Peterborough Building Society is hoping flower power will help it grow closer to raising its fundraising target of £1m for its Hour of Need campaign in aid of Marie Curie.
The branches of N&P in Stamford, Bourne and Market Deeping, which is part of Yorkshire Building Society, is joining others around the country to ‘get behind the daffodil’ this March, by encouraging people in the community to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin, in support of Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
Every £20 raised during the society’s Hour of Need campaign will help fund one hour of Marie Curie Nursing care. The society is aiming to raise £1million by December 2016, which equates to funding two hours of care by a Marie Curie Nurse for every hour of the campaign.
The Stamford branch, has raised an impressive £1,322 since the start of the campaign in 2014 – which equates to more than 66 hours of care.
