Collecting for the Daffodil appeal

  • Edited by: MarkWilkin - 05/03/2015 16:38

    So on Friday afternoon I was collecting for Marie Curie at my local Tesco's and raised £105 in two hours which I though very good. I enjoyed the time collecting and universally the comments I received were positive - "well done"; "great work", etc. 


    So I heartily recommend signing up for a collection or getting involved in some way.

     A local tip off I received in Beckenham is that collections at Supermarkets seem to do slightly better than railway stations.  Dressing loudly in garish clothing festooned with daffodils also helps!

    Hi grumpywelshman,


    Your fund raising seems to have been a great success, and your post will perhaps encourage other people to do the same. Which would be a good thing.


    But moving 'off topic': you don't seem to be, 'all that grumpy'.  I write as someone who, when briefly discussing akas by e-mail with a woman who came up with 'Pollyanna' for herself (I had to Google the name ! - not the reading of my own childhood), settled on Grumpy Bear for myself.
