Doncaster Council has given the green light for two sizeable housing developments that will create more than 300 new homes in the borough.

The charity needs volunteers to encourage people in the town to give a donation and wear a daffodil pin.

Money raised will help Marie Curie nurses provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness.

The appeal is now in its 30th year and has raised more than £73 million since 1986.

“Every year millions of people across the UK show their support for our work by simply giving a donation to wear a daffodil pin. This year we are hoping to raise £8.5.”
