STUDENTS at Holbeach Primary School worked hard over a few months growing daffodils to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

They placed the money raised on the petals of a large fabric daffodil.

The whole school had the chance to take part and also to create a decorated border for the plant pots. The winning design will be sent to Marie Curie for its plant pot design competition.

Pupils were also able to learn about Marie Curie and the way in which it helps those that suffer from cancer.

Teaching assistant Sue Tully said: “Marie Curie is one of the charities the school supports and through it we have been able to teach the pupils about the charity itself.”
