Amanda Scott, Marie
Curie Cancer Cares Community Fundraising
Co-ordinator, with staff and pupils from
Barbour Primary School
CHILDREN from Barbour Nursery School in
Lisburn have joined thousands of pupils across Northern Ireland
to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care's 'Fields of Hope'
This autumn, 74 schools across the Province
are helping out by planting daffodil bulbs to create their own
'Field of Hope'.
As part of the campaign pupils will be
raising funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care whilst learning about
the work of the nurses who care for terminally ill people in
hospices and in their own homes.
Tracey Cassells, principal at Barbour Nursery School, said:
"The children have thoroughly enjoyed planting their daffodil
bulbs and raising £457 for the charity.
"We're looking forward to seeing the flowers
bloom in spring.
They will serve as a striking reminder of the
important work carried out by Marie Curie's dedicated nurses."
