More than £1,300 was raised by the team of volunteer fundraisers who sold daffodils throughout the day in Ballyclare town centre.

They also and also sold the plants at Ballylagan Organic Farm in Straid.

Delighted with the level of support they received, Cara Ferguson from the Sixmile Group said: “We would like to thank everyone who supported us so generously, both in Ballyclare town and also Ballylagan Organic Farm, where there was also a Daffodil Walk and people could even feed the lambs.

“It was also very moving to chat to folk who have experienced the support of Marie Curie nursing at first hand, and who really appreciated the support they had received and wanted to express this to the volunteers.”

She added: “We will be collecting the Daffodil boxes from the numerous businesses that supported us this year over the next couple of weeks.

“This will then give us our grand total for the Daffodil Campaign 2013 for the Sixmile area.”
