DECORATED daffodil pots created by Sheffield children will be entered into a competition.

Pupils at Ridgeway Primary School have been helping to raise cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care this month by taking part in the national Mini Pots of Care Fundraising Day.

The children grew daffodils and then took them home in return for a small donation to the charity.

Children also held a themed fundraising day where they painted their daffodil pots and sold buns and cakes.

All money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.

Ridgeway Primary School will now enter their decorated daffodil pots into a national competition which will be judged by the Mini Pots of Care Team.

Teacher Bradley Townsend said: “We planted our Daffodil bulbs in November and over the winter all the children have been watching and caring for them as they grew.

“The children have very much enjoyed seeing their daffodils grow and are excited to see them bloom,” he added.
