TODDLERS at Kimberley Primary School have been growing daffodils as part of a Marie Curie Cancer Care fundraising initiative.

The ‘mini pots of care’ scheme not only gets kids raising money for charity but also teaches them how plants grow and how to look after something.

Deputy Headteacher Janet Birkin said: “It is a wonderful activity.

“It teaches children about the work of Marie Curie in the local community as well as fitting in with relevant science topics.

“The children all thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Marie Curie raises money to pay for nurses to care for terminally ill people in their own homes.

The Midlands head office is in Main Street, Kimberley.
