STAFF at a building society in Huddersfield town centre will be selling daffodils throughout March to raise cash for charity.
The Market Street branch of the Leeds Building Society is backing Marie Curie Cancer Care by selling the flowers for a suggested donation of £1.
Brian Curran, corporate development manager for the charity, said: “Every donation made in return for a daffodil will help us nurse patients with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes and provide support for their families free of charge.
“Every £20 raised funds an hour of vital nursing care.”
Said Mr Curran: “Last year, 4m people across the UK wore a daffodil, helping the appeal raise a total of £5.5m.”
Ann Bailey, Huddersfield branch manager of the Leeds Building Society, said: "We want to help Marie Curie to make this appeal bigger and better than last year’s, and hope to see many people walking around Huddersfield proudly wearing a daffodil.”
