Cash raised from the appeal will help to provide more free nursing care to enable those who are suffering with terminal cancer and other illnesses to receive care in the comfort of their own homes.

Collections for the appeal will be held in supermarkets and streets across Cumbria.

Commenting after the launch Tim said: "Marie Curie Cancer Care is a truly fantastic organisation that works with cancer sufferers to ensure they are able to spend their final days in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by the people they love. Every daffodil you buy or donation you make will go towards not only enabling Marie Curie to continue to deliver high quality care for patients, but will also help to raise the profile of this dedicated and vital organisation."

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
