Puppy Power Helps Super Southport Support for Marie Curie
LOCAL volunteers, and 1, 4 legged friend, called Jimmy
pulled out all the stops in support of Marie Curie's Great Daffodil Appeal
collection at Morrisons in Southport last weekend, raising ₤1,875.42 for the
UK's leading palliative care charity.
Jackie Pinkney collected with Jimmy her 18 month old Labradoodle, she said:-
"Jimmy was definitely the centre of attention wearing his daffodil gear in
support of the charity's 'Great Daffodil Appeal', and he loved every
minute of it. He lapped up all the strokes and pats he got from passing
shoppers. I was thrilled to hear that the collection raised such a great amount
for such a great cause, and feel proud that Jimmy and I we're part of it."
Marie Curie fundraiser for Southport Antony Jones said:- "I would like to
thank all the customers and staff of Morrisons for their support. The ₤1,875.42
raised over the three days we collected in store was such a great amount! I'd
also like to thank every one of our fantastic collectors including Jimmy of
course for their support, we simply couldn't have done it without them.
We'll be back in Southport collecting for the Great Daffodil Appeal at
Sainsbury's and B&M in early April 2017. Help us make every daffodil count and
